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.

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)

Years back we were fishing on Rainy Lake in Canada. Having a great time with the Smallies. Out of the corner of my eye I was watching a Chipmunk, he was eyeing an acorn at the end of a log that jutted out into the water. Eventually he made a dash for the acorn, as he picked up his prize a Northern of about 36 inches burst from the water and took the little chippy down. A few minutes later the Northern very carefully arose and placed the acorn back on the end of the log.
