What is your best method to use when you target Northern Pike? Only time I really target them is Ice Fishing and right after Ice out. I mostly use live bait. Although have had some luck throwing spinnerbaits.
Interesting rig. I've been converting most of my rigs and leaders to circle hooks. Trebles are just to hard on the fish. I might be able to make a few adjustments to your rig. It actually looks a lot like a fluke or flounder rig.Hi gun dog--- Have you ever tried quick strike rigs for Northerns?
Then WHY don't i catch more of 'em! LOL, Bill! Love those nasty fish! Bass, walleyes aren't co-operating- you can always find a few Pike that ARE! Best---- JoeWcatch pike all the time. love casting suspending husky jerks or trolling them during open water. on hard water i use tip-ups with shiners or smelt, jigs with the same or small spoons such as little cloes tip with a part of a minnow or smelt--depending on which lake i'm fishing on.
i have to say that JoeW has covered most of the tricks for catching pike.
