They like tubes don't they?

Seem like they'd look similar in the water.

When they're shallow-early spring after ice out and fall-the spawn. Don't think you would do much good with them right now but its not far off-guess it depends on how high up you're fishing.

Flukes are also a great lure for pike-any time.

If you can get it in front of them and present it in a manner that triggers a reaction... they will eat it... of course that is true with any lure. Give them a try.

Yes, I take the screw with the eyelid from the banjo minnow series - screw it in the front of the fluke, run a hook thru the eye - you get amazing action

if youre going where i think you are, youre probably going to have very little luck for mackinaws this early in the season since water there is still too warm. your best bet is to get to a main lake point, huck a big tube jig with a one oz weight as far as you can get out, and let that bitch sink. in that lake youre looking at a minute, minute and a half time till it hits bottom i bet... id suggest suckerchucking but I don't wanna be an arse-hole. big krocodiles will work too and widen your potential for other fish in the lake as well.

if you wanna use a fluke or any type of lure like that, i suggest going further west in a week or so after another snow event in the mountains, or after the next moon phase. just my 2 cents.
