Illinois hunting and fishing

After being swallowed, a rainbow trout fingerling peers out from the gullet of a northern pike in a lobby aquarium exhibit at the Alaska Department of Fish & Game in Anchorage, Alaska in this Jan. 22, 2001 file photo. The battle to rid Alexander Creek of salmon-munching northern pike may escalate into a war next summer. More pike will be targeted by state biologists after the Alaska Department of Fish and Game was awarded $635,000 from the Alaska Sustainable Salmon Fund for a four-year program to kill pike.
