    They might work for pike.

    They are OUTSTANDING for Pike, Lake Trout as well as Burbot. In MN they are the number one minnow sold for fishing pike.

    I have used it for trolling deep for Lake Trout. It works very good.

    I caught a 29" laker in september on a cut-plug sucker I caught fishing for grayling earlier that day. Their skin makes them stay on the hook extreemely well.

    Default Suckers for bait....?

    We're thinking of looking for smaller home, so I posed your question to our real estate agent ......he paused in contemplation, and said "works almost every time".

    Thumbs up Suckers for bait

    Used them all the time in MN growing up.
    They can be caught on small hooks using worms for bait.
    Another very effective way to catch them is with a minnow trap.
    Set your trap in an area you think they might be. Sometimes I suspended it in my dads cattle pond and other times on the bottom of a local creek.
    You can use worms for bait here also But I liked to use oatmeal.
    Get a good handful of whatever oatmeal you have and get it wet and form it into a very tight ball with your hands.Put the oatmeal ball in the trap and it will slowly fall apart spreading the bait out slowly and drawing the suckers and other minnow sized bait in.
    Too bad live bait is illegal up here as a live sucker on a tip-up can be deadly this time of year on pike.
