The Blue Pike - an American fishing mystery

I like reminders that not everything about the natural world has been nailed down and catalogued yet - not even in the United States. Is the blue pike or blue walleye just an oddly colored walleye? Is it a hybrid? A subspecies? A distinct species? Anglers and icthyologists have been puzzled for a very long time. DNA may solve the mystery.
