Pike are great to eat. But like Trevor said, they are difficult to filet if you dont have the right method. I always release though so it doesnt matter to me. Most guys i know who keep pike only keep ones over 30"s. They are not like a gar at all. They are a cold water predator that grow into the 30lb range at ripe old age.
