    Pike would go with big black leeches or a big 4in chartruese bait fish pattern as for Sheefish a flashy baitfish pattern

    White/red bunny streamers kill it! They kinda look like a red devil.

    I tie a bit "brighter" for pike than I do for muskies. Not sure why, other than it's just that in the boat I usually reach for alot of firetiger and white, chartruese, yellow when pike fishing. Muskies, I'm throwing something with black in it 90% of the time, and tend to stay more subdued. Again, maybe it's just the water I fish, but it's done me well.


    I also tie larger than many guys do, especially for pike. I carry smaller and single hook flies, but by and far I usually cast tandem or triple hook flies.

    That is an incredible pike! Last several years I've lived in muskie country where a big pike is a 35". Back in Kodiak, I need to take a trip to the interior and get a decent pike for a change. Nice fat fish!
