Top 5 Things You Need to Know About Northern Pike
Northern Pike Have Super Sharp Teeth
Pike can easily bite through fishing line and will tear through your flesh as well if you give them a chance. Make sure you bring some steel leaders on the boat or know how to tie your own leaders to avoid the bite-offs. Also, bring a good pair of needle nose pliers.
Pike Love Vegetation
Pike love weeds and there are a variety of weeds to fish. Cabbage and reeds tend to be best when it comes to pike fishing. The bays usually will have more vegetation on most lakes, so seek out the bays first if you’re searching for the weeds. Find some deeper weed edges in these areas and you’ll most likely do much better.
Pike Love Flashy Lures
Any lure with a spinner on it will usually do a good job of attracting plenty of pike. Obviously, you have to get the size right and present the bait in the right place, but the flashier the better it seems when fishing for northern pike.
