Bob Wire in New West brilliantly takes aim at Montana's invasive pike, or as Wire refers to them, the Rahm Emanuel of the Sea. There are now established Pike populations in many of the watersheds of Western Montana and the outlook for containment is grim..... a laugh out loud must read.

There is some hope, if Montana fishermen are willing to take some steps in the right direction. In some states, like Maine and California, where the northern pike is not native, fishermen are required to remove the heads of any pike they catch. I say let’s take it a step further, and put those heads on a small stake at the edge of the water, as a warning to other pike.
