Hi Owen…It really depends on where you fish for them. If you are fishing for both smallmouth bass and pike in open-water (away from weeds), you can use Blue Fox Vibrax #2 & #3 spinners, “twitching” the Rapala Husky Jerk #14, 1//4 oz. casting spoons, and top-water lures like the Rapala X-Rap Pop or Skitter Pop. Plastic grubs like 4″ tubes and twister-tails also worm well in open water for smallmouth bass and paddle-tail plastic grubs like the TriggerX Paddle Tail Minnow for pike. If you are fishing for both species around weeds, a 1/4 or 3/8 oz. “long-arm” spinnerbait, weedless spoon like the Johnson Silver Minnow or the Rapala Minnow spoon, soft-plastic twitch baits rigged weedless will also work well…..God bless you, Italo
