This concluding chapter raises three questions concerning the future of northern pike management in Minnesota: (1) How will the state partition the use of pike resources among all the groups interested in pike fishing? (2) To what extent will human population growth and land development alter shorelines and watersheds surrounding public waters? (3) Will the sports of recreational fishing and spearing retain their historical prominence in Minnesota culture? It argues that Minnesota is blessed with a huge northern pike resource; pike populations are plentiful in lakes, streams, and rivers throughout the state. They are plentiful enough that pike management today is a matter of trying to provide adequate fishing opportunities for the different fishing groups.
