Live-Bait Fishing Tips for Pike

  1.  If fishing for a 10 lb pike, you need to find baitfish that are 8 to 12 inches long.
  2. Chub, golden shriner, sucker, smelt or ciscoes are excellent choices for live bait.
  3. Using your baitcasting reel with at least a 20 lb monofilament line, rig your baitfish on a braided wire leader with a 2/0 to 6/0 single hook.  Push the hook into the mouth of the fish until the end of the hook sticks out over the top of the baitfishes snout.
  4. To make the baitfish float, hook the fish through its back.
  5. Besides using a single hook, baitfish can also be ringed on a quick-strike rig that has a pair of double or treble hooks.  If you get a strike, set your hook immediately.
