Northern Pike generally won't attack you or bite you if your swimming, they don't tend to attack anything larger then themselves.  However if your in a boat and splashing your hand in the water they may attack, thinking its a weak dying fish.  If your fishing, be sure to keep your hands away from their mouth, they will bite then for sure. I have seen this twice first hand.  It hurts very much too.  Be sure to use pliers and if you hold one, grab it with one hand under the gills and another under their belly.
