Pike Fishing

Pike are a great fish to catch, they come in all sizes and are relatively easy to target if you know what you are doing. They come in trophy sizes and can put up an awesome fight. Their fillets are bony; however, if you know the proper pike fillet techniques you can produce a boneless filet that tastes great. The best part about fishing for pike is that many lakes and rivers in Canada and Northern USA are loaded with them. You really don’t need expensive equipment or rigs to land a few nice pike either. This makes them one of the most desirable game fish for both seasoned and new anglers.
