Discover the pro secrets for catching more and bigger pike.
Reverently called the Water Wolf, the northern pike is one of the most exciting freshwater game fish, because it fiercely strikes lures like it hasn't eaten in weeks. These ferocious predators can reach over 4 feet in length and weigh in excess of 40 pounds. The hard-hitting pike ranges from New England through the northern plains to the Rocky Mountains, and all across Canada.
In this expertly written book, pro angler Jack Penny describes how to prepare for unforgettable adventures in fishing for, and catching, trophy pike. He covers tackle and equipment, lures and baits, pike behavior, fishing strategies by season, biology, weather conditions, and techniques for safely releasing fish—and for keeping a few “eaters” for dinner. This must-read book includes all the information a beginner needs, plus valuable tips and techniques for the more experienced angler.
