What did it cost to poison it twice and stock it a bunch? Just out of curiosity. In case I need to tell a judge what it would have cost if I hadn't beat the snot out of some bucket biologist.

I like that! Bucket biologists, got a degree in the sand box and moved on!
This is a very human trait, leave nothing unturned. An important moment in Sapien development is, when you find something, or somewhere very cool, and don't feel the need to mess with it, or tell anyone.
(Or publish an article with a photo, GPS coordinates and an upcoming guide book)
Not out of greed or jealousy, or spite , or pride, ownership, or whatever.)
Just because, it's fine as it is.
Jeez, another rant.

PS. A Smallmouth, raised at the top of the watershed in snow melt, is tasty on the Barby. I suggest a Dijon/pepper/butter glaze, and I've been a catch and release guy for a looong time.

The several million dollar F&G (Most costly) campaign against the Pi_e was not pretty. Two attempts were required. Can't say if a bucket was involved between their attempts at the problem. More hubbub than a world class Trout fishery deserves.
I remember casting a snail I tyed at lunch, to a football "literally" sized pig. (He was making piggy noises!).

7 years, 20 mil the first time, 12 mil the second, plus the loss to the local economy, I am betting over 60 mil total to try to get the pike out of there. Had they not, then the streams and rivers it connects to would have been wiped out by the pike

That's enough to tick off the Pope. It's more costly than a bank robbery. They should lock these guys up and toss the key. Pike are travelers. A radio tagged pike went though lakes and streams till it was two states away. It's almost impossible to fix some of tha damage these morons do. It should be legal to beat 'em with a stick.

I'm Voting for Dan for running the enforcement arm of F&G! But I'll help Big Fly sharpen the Pikes!

No sharpening needed, just treat them like a chicken stealin dog, tie a Pike around their neck and make them wear it till it rots. Works with a farm dog!
