Northern Pike fishing tip using crankbaits:

Crankbaits are an excellent suggestion when hunting for trophy Northern Pike. Make sure to match the size of the lure to the size of fish you are chasing. In this case-bigger bait-bigger fish.

As the season progresses, Northern Pike are more aggressive. Use a softer, less agressive approach in the spring...and ratchet it up as the season progresses.

Vary your retrieve. Speed up-slow down. Twitch it-hop it. Change the action and you'll soon be saying 'fish on!"
