    Got a video of some guys fishing on the Yukon. Pike were HUGE!!

    Bring plenty of top water lures and some weedless guys. They aren't picky.

    Buzz Baits, Jitterbugs, Hula Poppers, Crazy Crawlers, Sluggos, anything that resembles anything that is moving on top of the water will produce strikes. I also like the very large musky plugs.....

    Caught this 42" hog off the Yukon on the lower of these two.....

    Try some top water Rapala's, the ones with the break in the middle. Gold/honey colored one seemed to work the best. Get various sizes and colors, IMO fluorescent colors don't seem to work on pike as well as red, gold, black or blue.
