Here in Michigan, many (if not almost all) lakes in my area hold a fair amount of pike. One lake in particular that holds hog smallies is a great musky lake as well. My question is when fishing these lakes, would using a very short wire leader be doing more harm than good when fishing cranks and/or spinnerbaits? I'd hate to lose a small fortune in lures if I can prevent it. Thoughts?
I've never tried it with a spinnerbait, but I have used a leader for jerkbaits. A little research will tell you which length leader will turn a floating bait into a suspending one. Single strand wire will also stop a lot of bite offs when fishing jigs or worms, but I think it also deters a few bites from the bass too. On a slow moving rig I would suggest using a black felt marker to color every other inch of the leader to breakup the look of the leader.
Make sure to voice your opinion on the new pike regulations that the DNR is looking at right now. They need to allow more people to harvest all of the hammer handles!
