So I was talking fishing with a guy up town today, this guy moved up here from southern ontario about 5 years ago, and he likes to fish for perch in this lake a couple Km's out of town, he caught a few pike one day and now he's claiming pike took over the lake and there were never pike in there before and talking about how he wants to go in the summer and catch as many pike as he can and snap there necks and toss them on shore to try to get rid of them.
People like him shouldn't fish, there have been pike in that lake forever, at least for 30 years anyways, it's nothing new and destroying an ecosystem doesn't benefit anything. I know a perch lake with no pike or predators if he wants to see what it looks like, the perch are overpopulated and skinny as hell and never make it more then maybe 6 inches long.
I should have punched him out and I probably will someday but we were uptown outside the grocery store and it was the middle of the morning when mostly just old people are around. I try to look as respectable as I can around town because it's a small town and I make a living off the people here, but what a fucking prick.
