Soo Im planning on heading up to eleven mile this weekend and I want to try for pike. Probably going to try my luck at witchers cove, my only problem is I dont know a good set up or what I should/could sucker meat or waterdogs, use steel leader or no leader, braid with flouro leader?? Ive never caught a pike sadly so im a little lost when it comes to them, thanks.

I am a pike snob, I could talk about them for hours. I never use steel, #40 or so fluoro does me fine. Frozen suckers, shiners, chovies, fresh MRT

Don't stick yer wang in their grill.

Do keep a ready supply in buckets.

Don't ask for ID help when you catch one.

Do toss them on the bank at Ladora.

Don't ask me how to remove the Y bones.

Do use your regular bass tackle for them.

Don't ask why Colorado hates them.

Do be thankful for stocker trout.

There are W-A-Y too many for there to be any recruitment of bass. They are stunted and overpopulated. The big bass that could hold their own are dying out from old age and the little fish can't move up. The lake sucks now compared to ten years ago.

7-Up + Pike + Dipped in butter = Delicious, I'm telling ya, you'll never look at a pike the same way again!
