Vermont has spring pike shooting still ? .
That state is out of control, I am having problems at work with their state legislature on some commercial legislation they recently passed. Much to liberal a state.
I never fished there but used to ski their a lot in my younger days.
Killington, Stratton, and Stowe, etc
Shooting fish here in the Upper Midwest (Michigan/Wisconsin, etc.) is not legal and we do have our share of illegal fishing especially for the salmon running out of lake michigan. With some of the local characters I have seen over the years, if I knew they could legally have guns on them I would not be fishing I can assure you.
