Giles,  the way you rigged it would work fine when the pike are aggressive and actively hunting.  This way is better when they are not.

Good luck!

@goosehd It worked.

I had 3 and missed about 4 other hits.  None of the ones I landed was large, but that'll happen if I put the hours in....

"spinner.jpg"do you fish Spinner baits @Giles? I have one tied on at all times on my boat, and they are unreal for Pike fishing.

I have one or two, but not tried them yet.  I'll pop one in my bag next time I venture out.....
