Let's talk pike lures. What do you do well on? What do you feel is over-rated?

I thought real hard about trying to pull a flasher fly for pike. I mean, c'mon. The flasher has to bring them in; now would they hit the twirling fly...

I can only think of one style bait I have not caught pike on and that would be a flasher and fly I use for salmon.

When it comes to pike, you just need a clean running bait in there strike zone

I think I might try trolling a flasher and fly on delevan this year to see what happens...

A little over 60 years ago, my father took me fishing on Partridge Lake. My cane pole did not provide the amusement I was craving, so I improvised. I took a large snelled hook that my father used for putting out perch under a bobber for pike. I put a piece of Apple peel on the hook and snapped a red and white bobber on the snell loop - slipped the snell loop on my finger and started splashing it over the side of our rented wood boat. After a minute or two, the snell loop was ripped from my finger. My dad put on a daredevle and snagged the rig and I had my first pike.

I do not suggest Apple peel as a go-to pike bait.

Usually the best seems to be anything I am throwing for bass on a given day. Wink

The Bucher tail 500 mini in clown color is my favorite for N.Pike in Canada.

Iv'e found the dressed #5 mepps spinners good for pike & bass also....even perch will go after them. Some musky articles Ive read reccomend them for finesse presentations; cold water ect. The northers in N. Mn. also like standard bass spinnerbaits. (the safety pin style)
