Jigging up pike
« on: Nov 18, 2021, 06:46 AM »
Hey there!
Last year I mostly gave up panfish to try to jig up pike.  I managed to catch one little pike through the ice with a blade bait.
Anyone have any favorite pike baits through the ice with a jig pole?
Any tips are greatly appreciated.
Thanks!

Also- what action for pike do you prefer- ripping through the water or more subtle?  Are there any good jigging strategies?
Thanks

My favorite pike jig is a Northlands Airplane jig in Glo Perch tipped with 1/2 a cisco.
I use heavy action rods with 30# braid and titanium leaders.

Thanks for all of this great material!  The guy in the pike jigging video was jigging in 31 feet of water.  Was half of my problem fishing the wrong spot?  I was fishing 6-7 feet in a Connecticut river set back.
Thanks!

Your depth is dictated by season and water you fish. Early I set flags shallower. Mid season and late season ill set flags deeper. Some lakes are pretty clear in winter here. When I'm setting shallow I usually set 2ft off bottom. In deep stained water I do the same. In deep clear water I set half way down. If I can see bottom in 30ft i know they can see all too. Some of my biggest were caught on large chubs set 15ft down in 30fow.

Pike have great. Smell power so scent it up. Use scented plastic and your favorite spray.

Rattle baits have upped my catch also. Especially in stained water. Pounding lures on bottom will do the same thing. A large rattling hair jig can be deadly. The hair can't trigger strikes from lookers. It undulated are rest like a living critter.

Jig bigger baits than normally accepted through ice too. Pike aren't line shy or intimidated by huge pry so go big.
real fishermen don't ask "where you catch those"
