Recent data collected in 2020 showed a more balanced northern pike population, consisting of an abundance of female pike currently in the protected area of 25 to 35 inches. Moving to a protected size range and a daily pocket limit of two protects larger adult pike females from harvesting, which staff say will maintain current levels of natural reproduction. “These new regulations will provide anglers with opportunities for sustainable fishing by protecting fast-growing females, preserving northern pike`s natural reproduction for the future of the Big Muskego and Bass Bay ecosystems,” said Ben Heussner, MNR fisheries biologist.
