Where to find Pike.
There are many places where you will find Northern Pike in Lakes. Generally, you will find small to medium size pike in the back of bays where there are thick weeds, lily pads and wild rice. This is where small to medium size pike feed on small minnows, bugs, frogs and each other. Out near the edge of the weeds, the pike will get bigger because the pike have the food of the bay to their back and also have the chance of taking a small Walleye swimming by the outside of the weeds. So where are the big pike?
Big pike generally do not bother with small minnows, frogs and bugs. Their main food is Walleyes, small hammer-handles, Suckers, Chub and Whitefish. The big pike will hang out where they can ambush Walleyes. The prime ambush area is points leading into bays. They will also hang around rocky points, shoals, islands and other places where there are Walleyes. The best place to get a big trophy pike is at the mouth of a stream or river, narrows between islands and water-flow between lakes. The big pike just sit there waiting for Walleyes to swim through. Walleyes tend to migrate around a lake all year, whether it's moving to find cooler water, deeper water, more food or even finding their spawning grounds.

Of all the game fish you can catch in North America Pike are the easiest. Pike will hit just about any lure. The most popular lures for Pike are the "red & white" curve, (made by Pelican Lures, Len Thompson and Eppinger) and the yellow "five-of-diamonds" first made by Len Thompson and since also made by Eppinger.  Pelican Lures has “one-uped” both of these manufactures by developing the 10 of Diamonds, (5 on each side). Pike also will hit jigs, Rapalas and Thundersticks, etc. Some of the biggest pike are caught with small jigs while Walleye fishing. It makes sense because the big pike will patrol the outer parameter of the schools of Walleyes.

Play with your bait:
Pike will play with your bait. It's not uncommon for a big Pike to hit and let go several times before the bait is taken. With this in mind you have to show some patience. If you get a big pike on and then lose him, just wait a little while and he will hit again. Pike appetites are so ferocious that they forget quickly and start to feed again. There are many reports by fisherman of catching the same pike over again.

Casting A Spoon:
One very effective way to maximize the attraction of a spoon is to slap it. What you do is cast towards your target zone but cast up high so your lure falls into the area you want to fish. When the lure is about 2 or 3 feet above the water, jerk your line towards you. This makes the lure slap on the surface. If you are doing it right, you can hear the spoon slap. The sound of a spoon slapping on the surface seems to attract pike and/or trigger a feeding response.
