I always see the pike reports but can't quite figure out how to catch more then just a couple. I'd like to have a day of 5 to 7 Pike if possible but always seems to fish them on the days they are finicky.
At least you caught one nice trout and got your targeted species.

Thanks for watching. FishHuntNow! I caught pike at 11mile this summer but it takes A LOT of patience. I have found that the larger ones will actually hit pretty light at first and the pull like crazy once they know they are hooked. I spend 90% of the time cleaning weeds off my baits and adjusting their depth when I am trolling for them. Low light or a chop on the water also seems to be a must.. that has been my experience.
