snap jig the dardevil

blade baits, large jiggin raps, large plastic of all kinds, weighted rattle traps.  they arent picky about what they bite imo  i mostly just tip up fish them though.  live chub gill perch....... whatever i can catch id bait.
real fishermen don't ask "where you catch those"

Idk I have only had success with bass minnows but not pike minnows but just curious if these would work and thx for the tip on the daredevle. How long should I pause between snaps

And do you have any opinion on the perch colored senko

I spring/summer fish a lake that has more pike and bass than anything.out of the 10 years ive fished senko wacky worms there, i have never caught a pike on one.i change to a spinner bait or spoon and nail them.ive come to the conclusion that pike do not like senkos all that much.

im opinion, the more attraction you have going on the better for predators.  rattles, flashes. scent trails and vibrations all expand your effective attracting range 10fold! thats why a rattle trap, rigged to jig, does so good on them.  the trap thing works wonders under the ice.  thats where i started using it 20+yrs ago. people think you need go small under ice but not so.  pike arent shy and will hit a chub hooked to a log chain, so add those attracting features.  look back in my posts about this for pics.  im not typing all that again. lol  blades, rattles, sponges with scent, glow.................. ...


no opinion on the senko.  scented plastic worms on a jighead(aka jigworm) are deadly on spring pike in the bays though.  i hop it back with 2ft high snaps.  kick up silt and bang it down.  the more the better imo.

Pike donít discriminate. They will go after stuff much bigger than you think they can handle and much smaller than you think they should be looking at. I use muskie baits that can be jigged. Or if you donít have that in your Arsenal and want to have a ton of fun simply drill a hole a few feet away from the one youíll be jigging out of and drop a camera down pointed at the hole you are using. Now use a decent sized lipless crankbait like a rattle trap. Youíll see them drawn in if they are around.

Incorporate tipups into this approach if you like. Iíll drop deadbait down and let it soak for maybe 15 to 20 minutes and Iíll also have a hole within 10 feet of that deadbait. Iíll jump around to those secondary holes and jig aggressively with a rattle bait for 20-30 seconds and move on to the next hole. The rattle bait draws their interest and when they come in to check things outÖ.voilaÖ.hereís an easy meal for them that just happens to be attached to a tip up.

Pike will take Senkos.
I took my young son fishing for pike one day.  We were trolling spoons in a small lake.  I caught 5 while he caught none.  We even traded places and rigs.  He was so discouraged.  I suggested that we change location and tactics and go for bass.  His second cast with a Senko brought in a 22" pike.   He was happier after that.

Live minnows by far the best for targeting pike, provided they are big enough. I switched to frozen mackerels a few years back, as Quebec no longer allows the use of live bait anywhere in the province since a few years. Bite not as good...

While I don't target pike on ice using lures, I've caught them on small jigging raps, mini kastmaster spoons, and even drop shotting live worms on ice. Most often while playing a school of panfish, they suddenly all disappear and you see a big mark on flasher. Same for bass and lakers, though I've done significantly better jigging rattlebaits suspended for those.

thats a bummer about your live bait law.  you would think theyd let ya use native to lake young at least.  maybe put your mackerel on a windless, for jigging action.  a rattle added to that mite help call them too.  i have used a rattle bait around my tip ups to call fish from farther away to the area.  seems to help at time from my experience.

Not the end of the world. In general, I find that setting up a spread of tip ups keeps me stuck to a single area for too long. I prefer to run a gun jigging lures with one rod, giving each hole no longer than 5 minutes without a fish.

Also, while numbers have gone down versus live minnows, the frozen mackerels did help weed out smaller fish. Managed better sizes on 6-8 inch mackerels, including the musky in my avatar.

I always keep this one in the mix, but I have not caught a pike on it so far, all I have caught is some smallmouth bass on the "Giant" Chubby Darter...My pike waters are limited and I spend more time looking for walleye, so it/me is not a great gauge.
