Our friend Nima is continuing to catch nice-size pike even from shore but he is fishing peak times like very early and late in the day when pike cruise near shorelines to feed.
On a recent outing he did exceptionally well fishing the Rapala X-Rap #10 in the Ghost color.
You can see why when you look at the juvenile alewife that are plentiful now and being predated on by many gamefish including pike. There’s a reason why lures come in so many different colors. Always good to have a good selection from bright to natural colors to match the color of the smaller fish the gamefish are feeding on.
