When it comes to catching Northern Pike, there are a few things that are worth knowing.
This is especially true when you want to have a fruitful Northern Pike fishing trip.
Here is a list of three lure techniques to know:
- The bigger the lure doesn’t mean a bigger fish. Just because there are a lot of people that believe the old adage “bigger is better”, this is not always true. When fishing for Northern Pike there is much more than just size of the lure that should be kept in mind when trying to Pike. This leads us to our next tip.
- The color of the dress doesn’t matter if it can’t dance. While there are people that will say that the color is most important, the Northern Pike care more about the movement of the lure than anything else. Jointed streamers and flies with wide, cone-shaped bucktail heads produced the best, because when paused, they would flutter or jackknife, allowing the material to pulsate.
- Topwater lures aren’t the best for Pikes. Topwater lures under a range of conditions are great but to be truthful, using topwater isn’t always going to produce that trophy fish you want. When it comes to working the surface, it shouldn’t be the first and only try.
