Pike anglers know that big Pike like to hit bit lures, much like trophy Musky. If you love pike fishing you probably also know that the Prairies produce lot’s of trophies all year long!
Scot Wallace is a fan of using Brain Button’s “quick-strike” rigs (to check them out, go to Facebook @larysluckyleaders ), especially for pike. The rig is very versatile because you can use it with large dead-bait, or with soft-plastic swim baits. Pike often crab a large bait sideways and if it’s hooked in the head, you either have to wait for the fish to turn it head-first to eat it, or use Brian’s rig shown above which usually hooks them up right away.
Do his rigs work for trophy Pike? Just look above!!
