MN DNR Makes Changes To Northern Pike Regulations in New Zone Concept

In some areas of the state, the MN DNR is looking to make some big changes to Northern Pike limits.  They've set up a three zone system to manage the pike, as different regions have different eco systems.  In some areas, the harvest will be greatly increased to try to prevent smaller "hammer handle" Northern Pike from destroying the pan fish population.
