Pike Fishing with Spoon Lures

The most important thing to remember when fishing for pike with spoons is that when casting or trolling a spoon lure, the speed is extremely important for success. Depending on the spoon, if you fish with it too slowly, or to fast, it will not wobble properly and perform as it is intended. You need to experiment to get a feel for the proper speed to fish your spoon, and you will eventually get the pike to bite.

Most anglers will cast their spoons roughly 10 to 20 feet beyond the area they believe the pike are in, and then retrieve it from this strike zone.
