Finding Pike

Northern pike are known for their aggressiveness, and can be caught throughout the summer. They can be found around reefs and weedy bays, where underwater vegetation creates a perfect hunting habitat. Though often found in shallow water, pike will often be caught while jigging for walleye in deeper depths. As the warm summer months come to a close, move to deeper water to find for the best northern pike fishing.

Patrick’s first day of fishing in Canada—and he caught the largest fish in their group of 12, over their entire trip! As Patrick's very proud grandpa, Mike Ownby said, "Beginners Luck! Needless to say, he is HOOKED on Halley’s."

Catching Pike

Our favorite baits for northern pikes are spoons (size #2 in shiny, black and white, and five of diamonds colors), bucktails (medium to large, in black and orange colors), shad raps (in chartreuse, white and perch colors), and trolling lures (in bright, silver, and copper colors). And while those are our favorites, many anglers will tell you—you can catch ‘jackfish’ with just about anything!

Fishing Tips

If you’re fishing for the big northern pikes, buy the best quality leaders you can. These fish will fight you hard, and you want to be ready with the hardiest tackle you can get. Bring a wide variety of bait and lures with you, and remember that biggest isn’t always best when it comes to pike lures. Try shiny lures on sunny days, and colorful ones on cloudy days.
