northern pike in resthaven ponds

  1. just wondering if they are still in there as we use to ice fish for them back in the 80s using tip ups with shad for bait?
     
  2. I live right down the road from resthaven, and fish there often. I know a couple guys that fish there religiously all year round and as far as i know they never have caught a pike while ice fishing in the last 5-6 years since i've been fishing with them. They use large creek chubs in search of bass, but if there were pike in the area i'm sure they would have came across one or two. I caught a 6.5 lb pike in one of the ponds about 7 years ago, so i'm sure that there might be a few left but I wouldn't go there in hopes of catching pike. We do catch alot of bass while we are ice fishing though.
