Northern Pike Lures Can Be Confusing

Sep 16, 2008
Northern pike freshwater fishing is truly an experience. However, there are those individuals who don't want to start his or her fishing adventure without knowing something about the lures to use. On the other hand, there are those individuals who would much rather try a variety to see which lures work well for them. Either way the pike will be more than happy to help an individual to decide.

And, with so many different types of lures to choose from it can get a bit confusing for the fish angler that is going after a northern pike. However, there are some lures that stand out more so than others.

There are also books and magazines that are especially designed as being noted as northern pike lure guides. These books and magazines often give descriptions of the best lures for catching northern pike. In some of these books and northern pike guides an individual might find information about a variety of lures, and there are a few listed in this article.

Spoons have been around for quite some time, and these are those lures that are like oval shaped pieces of metal that actually take on a somewhat resemblance of a spoon. Well, of a small version of a spoon. It is curved and has three hooks on the end. This fishing lure is most likely to be found in any northern pike lure guide. While a northern pike fish angler knows that the spoons will wiggle about, this is part of the reason for their popularity in the northern pike fishing world. Spoons also vibrate in the water, which attracts the northern pike as well.

Then of course there are those northern pike anglers who will use nothing but crank bait. Crank bait lures are those lures that literally look like little baitfish. Most of these lures are actually made of plastic, but in some situations in the past the lures were actually made of a variety of types of wood. Crank bait can be painted in a lot of different shades and colors that literally match any type of fish that a northern pike would attempt to eat.

There are those crank bait lures that even look like crawdads. Crank bait is usually quite a bit larger than the other lures and often times will be trolled behind a boat. This obviously attracts the larger northern pike. Of course these lures are no doubt going to be found in a book or magazine that is considered a northern pike lure guide. In addition, there is spinner crank bait that is used which is considered even better for bigger northern pike, especially those pike that are more aggressive towards the catching of the food they eat.

Obviously, an individual is going to find live bait in a northern pike lure guide because there is nothing a northern pike loves better than the real thing. This might include small minnows, night crawlers, and even perhaps leeches.

For many northern pike fish anglers the lure guide is considered an important addition to the tackle or equipment that is taken on the fishing trip. Another thing that fishermen do is take a northern pike lure guide into a sporting goods store to be sure they find exactly what they are looking for.
