Default Favorite swimbaits?

Gettin' serious about fishing for big pike in open water this winter and swimbaits seem the logical choice. For you swimbait guys, what are your favorite models and colors?

PM me if you prefer.

Thanks!

Since pike bang the crap out of the baits 6" BBZs hold up pretty good also. Floaters & SLow Sink. In Perch & Trout.

If its pike id the lc real californa in perch or trout. Or some bbz, but the dynamos are cheaper and work ok.

Slammers are popular back East for lunker bass -- I have one in the rainbow trout pattern. Not sure how they would hold up to pike, though:

3. BBZ

and if you're really brave, or rich...
4. 3:16's



I'm still trying out the FX Fury's with Lastkast 40lb fluro leader but the early boat ramp closings didn't help!

My all time favorite for many species are j-13 rapalas they are killer, I use them everywhere I go from all inshore species in mexico and costa rica to pike and lakers in canada to king salmon in Alaska. I get rid of the front hook and put a single on the rear, I lost a very large laker on one Sunday at Granby and had the barb pinched also, got to see the fish at the boat before it woke up and took off under the boat at warp speed a few head shakes and gone, awesome, then another follow up. I only use a few lures, never even tried a dynamic or whatever it's called.
