Fishermen alert: the province is offering a bounty on any pike caught in southeast B.C. in an old-style bid to curb populations of the pesky fish.

If you catch a pike in the Canadian section of the Columbia or Pend-d’Oreille rivers and bring its head to the front counter office of the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations in Castlegar, you will gain entry to a draw for one of four $500 prizes in the form of credit for fishing equipment at participating sporting goods stores.

The draw will be conducted March 25, 2016 according to a ministry news release.
