    KSUFLASH respect our rivers please

    find the weed pads, and you will find the pike. Not many sections of weeds in the river systems right now, but if you are able to find them, you will find pike. Also look at the bank edges which have deep pools. The swirling ones trap bait fish, the pike sit up under the undercut banks, then pound the bait.

  4. Just got back from a week of pike fishing in canada and I can tell you what we had success with.

    We were trolling about 20 ft away from weedbeds and lilypads in about 7-12ft of water, but only let the line out a good cast behind the boat, nothing more or you will get weeds. Pike have limited vision and can't really see below them, only above and to the side...barely, so make sure the bait is above em if anything. Caught many 5-7lbers doing this in canada, can't wait to go back the 14th.
