Gloria and Terry Rial could keep this northern pike on certain Minnesota lakes but not on others due to DNR experimental regulations.

According to a Minnesota Department of Natural Resources press release, fifteen lakes in Minnesota will be posted soon with signs that indicate the current northern pike special regulation will end Tuesday, Nov. 1.


This change is the result of a new state law that limits the DNR to no more than 100 northern pike special or experimental regulation lakes and only allows for length-based rules.
