Does anyone know where I can get information on the spawning habits and requirements of pike? They are one of my favorite fish to catch and I plan on targeting them HARD this spring after ice out. I will be fishing the Cuyahoga river at the Edison pool. Specifically, I need to know the ideal water temps that they spawn in. I know the river will be ice free before the lakes so I expect the timing to be a little different between the 2 habitats. Even more specifically, do they hit baits during the spawn or just before and after or all the time? And what substrates and depths do they prefer at that time of the year? As my time is usually limited, I want to be as precise as possible. I bought an 11' Coleman Crawdad just for the gorge this year and the pike that are there! I am retiring my canoe as a fishing vessel as my back always kills me after fishing in it. Thanks in advance... PS - KSUFlash, we'll have to hook up at the gorge a couple times this year. I know you live right around the corner, and I live 5 minutes away. Maybe we can have a pike fish-off!
