Invasive Species Can Be On Your Docks & Boat Lifts Too

By now you would hope that many of us would be educated enough to know about the dangers of spreading invasive species with our watercraft.  The DNR has made a huge effort in the past decade to educate the public.  We're used to inspecting our boats and trailers for invasive species, but in some cases some of these species may spread and grow another way:  boat lifts and docks.

DNR Urgers Anglers to Fish For Abundant Northern Pike on Mille Lacs Lake, Here’s How To Clean Them [VIDEO]

I've talked about this before, but it's a common misconception that Northern Pike aren't worth keeping, or fishing for.  But honestly, it's not that hard to clean them right and get the y-bone out.  Any experienced fishing guide knows this, and they also know they taste pretty darn good.  (Sometimes, better than walleye... shocker!)
