I'm taking my youngest (6yrs old) out on a fly-out pike trip this weekend. I've been on this trip before and have landed plenty of pike so I'm not concerned about putting fish in the boat for him.
I have the "usuals"; Rapela's, dare devils, a few crank baits, the top waters (jitterbug/ frog and mouse)... But I am curious if any of you have a "Go To" lure that gets them to bite even when for some reason the "usuals" aren't producing like they normally do. I've experienced this once when the water was higher than normal as well as higher than normal boat traffic.
Thanks in advance!
