Seeing i've caught thousands of Pike, most of them were on the #5 Mepps silver aglia. Worlds # 1 lure. You need min. 8lb. good line but 10lb. line is a safe toss to most. Using lighter line you just back off a bit. Using a steel leader 6inch's would be advise, them toothy critters are tough on lures and line. The mepps is good because of the sonic sound it create's in the water drive's fish nuts kinda like someone going up and down your sidewalk zinging a chain saw sooner or later you go out there and well I'll leave that up to you.
Use white spinner and mepps and you'll clean up on fish you chuck to.
h2o<---Mepp's # 5 Silver Aglia plain no bucktail. Fantastic lure.
H2o When are we going fishing for Pike????? The rules you can only use that #5 Mepps I can use what I want to.. The prize Chile and Burger at the Raft. We will try to get Camara Guy to tape it. Wanna bet????
I just got invited out for Sunday and we are going after 20 pound Pike Jefff follow us. H2o we will get together soon after the next cold front Monday night is over if possible. I'm booked Tuesday but I'm trying to get ahold of the fellows to wait for a few days.. The fun begins. H2o I wonder how many Pike I have caught never gave it a thought. Bob
I remember one time at Walpole on the Res. two of us caught almost 300 Pike one long day on top of dozens of Smallies and we also had a couple of big Muskie come up and give our lures (Red Eyes) a quick look see and then leave. See Ya on the Water. Bob
