Those Tricky Pikes
Posted 02 March 2007 - 06:52 PM
Recently i've had a bit of luck on the other side of the bay using soft plastics. The most successfull has been a plastic that is dark brown and a green with some flurescence. I have lost most because I only use 6lb line and trace.
Still learning to catch these tricky buggers. What is your experience with them?

They are annoying, and smelly But the long-finned pike taste a lot better (IMO) than the short-finned pike (AKA Snook). I have encountered both species a lot targeting snapper on shallow reefs using SPs - I haven't found an SP that they prefer over others, if I did I think I'd remove that one from my tackle box I generally use 3" and 4" minnow SPs (stickbaits) in natural colours (blues, browns, greens)
I've also caught a lot on trolled lures - medium sized (7-9cm) diving minnows seem to do OK.
