Minnesota Fishing Tips for Northern Pike:

The trend is toward longer rods for Northern Pike for these reasons:

  • You can cast further and more accurate
  • You have better control when you retrieve and steer your bait through weeds and other snags
  • You can go deeper when you do a "figure-8"
  • The power is better on hook sets. The longer rod takes slack up faster
  • The longer fishing rod helps to lead the Northern Pike and adds better shock absorbing power.
