Well it hasn't been done in captivity and I'm honestly not that hopeful, lol. They are probably too young anyway.

They are pretty big, so id be surprised if they arent sexually mature. you have the set up for it. if it doesnt happen i can lend you a temporary pond to set up - 600 gallons - and they can hang out in there all summer. i bet that will get them going

Awesome Peter!! I remember when I was into pikes these things were pretty much just a wish on everyone's list. Glad you got a handful of them. Again, that's another fish I'd love to have a freshwater tank set up for.
