Ok, I've heard numerous guys tell me, two feet under the ice because pike have eyes on the top of their head and they are always able to look up. Then, there are the guys that say two feet above the bottom or over the weeds. Then, there are the pike that I see swimming in tanks at Gander Mountain or the zoo and they are suspended about half way down. So, where to put the minnow? Most of the lakes I fish don't really have the weed factor, so I'm talking top to bottom and I don't try to find pike on a locator, I just put the minnow down where I have caught pike in the past or where I think they will be today, and wait it out. Part of me thinks it really doesn't matter too much. But maybe it does....what do you think?
