I have caught literally dozens of huge pike on three lures, all have a time and place

Williams whitefish c90
BullDawg
large single blade spinner

You need to know what they are feeding on in lake you are fishing then mimic with lure. Go big or go home!

Not because it's the most effective but it's easy to unhook. A thrashing pike with an Xrap in the mouth sounds scary.

I’ve heard excellent things about the Williams Whitefish, going to grab a few. Recommend any specific colours? I’ve tried a mepps aglia no 5 many times without any results.

Yeah I know what you mean crimson. I like to swap out my spoons with single hooks. I also take the middle hook off of Rapala lures.

I catch plenty of them trolling through weed beds with spinnerbaits. I find I get huge strikes running them just under the surface.

My two biggest Northerns have been on my greenback tackle, accidentally. A jig thru the ice and a crawler harness. Just fessing up. My go to when targeting them is a large willowleaf spinner.
