We're back with some more helpful tips for your Springtime pike fishing. Before dropping your line into the water, you'll have to do a little bit of research. It would help if you learned where pike like to hang out and what they like to eat. In this article, you'll learn about these topics to help you have a more successful experience. 


In the last article, we discussed how this time of year would be their post-spawn recouping. Since the pike are trying to recover from this time, they won't be super active unless they feel like it's going to be worth their energy. That makes fishing during this time of year a little bit more challenging, so skilled tips will be helpful. You really need to move your bait through the water slowly. Slow-moving bait will make it look easier to catch for the pike. Bait like large grubs, minnows, or even lizards are perfect for this time of year. Throw your line to the edge of the tall weeds where the pike will be resting. Allow the bait to fall to the floor bed and slowly reel it in while shaking the line a bit. If you can make the lure emulate a dying or wounded prey, then you're doing it right. You could also use a plastic worm with a hook hiding inside to catch some pike in the middle of weeds. Try dipping your line into the gaps of vegetation and gently glide across the surface.
