I came across this video of a nice 20 + pound Northern pike landed though the ice.

20 lbs 14 oz

Nice job of pulling it in, but as you watch this video, I would  be interested in your comments regarding the chances that this fish would survive the release.

I am not being critical, just want to use this video as a starting point for to hear suggestions on how we can improve the catch and release success rate.
