Having a hard time getting pike to bite.

Postby chris_reid1980 » Tue Jan 28, 2014 5:53 pm

I have a aqua-vu fish camera and I am seeing pike on it but having a hard time to get them to bite. I usually use a small spoon with a minnow hooked through the head on a jigging pole in my ice hut and a tip-up outside with just a small hook with a minnow hooked through the back. Any ideas?

Sometimes a really stinky bait or quick movements will make a pike strike instinctively. I normally use a live 4" sucker minnow on a three prong hook when I fish for pike.
