Going upnorth to fish with my family, including steelhead mickey, and wondering what kinds of setups you use for pike. We've caught a fair share over the years, but the only way I've ever fished for them was casting and pulling in spoons (cleos, daredevle, etc.) on mono and wire leader. Any other suggestions you've had success with for the summer time? Thoughts on where these fish like to hang out in the summer? We mostly fish for other species, but we always give pike a try.

Was also thinking about going to a firewire setup with wire leader, any thoughts on that? What size reel would I need to get an adequate amout of firewire on? Plan on backing a little with mono so no slip.

i was casting a big 4 inch long crankbait in june last year and pulled out a 34 incher it was just a private lake though so it couldve been a fluke :?
have u ever seen those lure jackets? there like a tube jig in the shape of a fish and u put them over ur crankbait. i had one of those on a silver and black crankbait no leader just straight 6 pound mono!

What about the good ole days, Spey, with the gigantic bobbers and frozen smelt? Good times....

My other brother and I found pike quite a thrill when trolling spoons with the paddle boat (hillbilly fishing). :shock: Never had a pike pull the boat around quite like that before. :P :lol: :lol: :lol: <-- we did a lot of this. The yoopers were impressed.
