Default pike 11 mile/spiney

thinking I'll try to catch some pike this week. caught one mostly by accident last time at 11 mile. anyone care to share here or PM me your suggestions for whether I focus at 11 mile or spinney and roughly where? this will be a day trip so not a ton of time to drive all over looking.

at 11 mile I was thinking fishing the weeds in/around hobart but would love others' ideas. fishing from shore as per usual.

Spinney is a much friendlier shore spot for pike. Bring waders, fish the North side, near the entrance.

Good luck.

For me, spinney has been better for numbers, 11-mile has been better for size.

Plenty of big fish in Spinney. I have personally seen 2 40"ers come out of there in the same weekend, on different days and in different conditions. Spinney is underrated, IMO. It's also about to close....soooo...

nice. thanks! not so much going for size although a monster would be all kinds of fun (and the wife will undoubtedly be the one to get it). getting better at filleting them and they are damn tasty in the frier.

Big ones don't belong in the fryer, bro.

I fish mostly high mtn trout and get 12-14". 18" is a big trout to this noob, 20+ is a big pike...I can't fathom a 30" fish. If I get one I'm signing my name on it in sharpie, taking a fish bra pic and putting it back for you.
