First off I'll say THANKS to the Fishing Marshall for the guidance on the smithwick rogue. I've had good success with this lure as the water has cooled down. My spoons and spinners seem to stop producing as the water temp is cooling; all of my hits are now coming on jerk baits. What other baits do you guys recommend for fishing pike in water under 40F? I've read a lot about using chubs under a bobber. I've had success doing this in Canadian weed beds, but no luck when trying it in the Tusc. I'm sure If I floated a nice 8" chub in front of a pike, she would grab it, but I can work a ton more water when casting than when using bait. I tried fising two rods from my canoe; the chub on a bobber got no action, while the casting rod caught several fish and missed several more. Granted, I was placing casts tight to cover, while the bait was generally just floating downstream 10 yds from the canoe. Quick report: Fished the Tusc twice over Thanksgiving. My brother caught a nice 32" fish the 1st day, and a my son and I caught a couple of smaller pike the 2nd day. Here is a shot of the smaller one (just stringered for the picture, then released).
