Pike Baits
« on: 03/01/20 16:50 UTC »
Making some northern pike baits for when we go to Canada next September. We've always made baits that are flashy and bright. But the last few years have noticed that baits that looked more natural have worked better. To many time when catching a walleye and bring it to the boat a big pike grabs it. So this year I made a few spinner baits that looks like a walleye.

Nice looking Pike Baits! You can never make them too big!

Magnum bladed swim jigs are Northern Pike candy! Use the same mold as your spinnerbaits but cut the wire and attach them to the bottom of the blade (heavy wire is tough to get a nice wrap though!)

Barlow's sells them:  https://barlowstackle.com/Magnum-Shakee-Blades-Plated-Finishes-P3856/
Whenever I take a guest out that has never caught a Northern Pike I always put on a "Shakee"

Real early spring fishing in the backwaters will find big pike hanging on white or chartreuse spinner baits. Along about June I like red/black spinner baits.

For sure!!!... if I'm going purposefully for big pike, I use my musky gear, and the magnum chatters are a long time favorite to have in the mix.

 Those hooks are a 5/0 VMC stinger hook. I'll smash the barb down before I fish them so it will be easier to remove.
