Creeks Pools Pike And Bass

Recommended Posts

I fish a creek pool about 100 feet left to right and 20-50 front to backs. Recently a small pike 15 inches or so moved in and is super aggressive I caught him twice in an hour. My question is I usually slam the few small to average bass in there and nothing tonight. Do you think the pike would cause the bass to leave that specific pool ? I'm in upstate ny.

Pike will eat anything. I have no clue if the bass will move away but you can find schools of shad or craws. Im sure bass will swimming around. Good luck!

Bass will move away if there is a larger preditor in close, too close for comfort, even though the bass are preditors themselves, they have their place in the food chain, they will move or hide if threatened.

a 15" pike isn't going to eat any bass worth catching, but it may well outcompete them for food.

There are a few areas in lakes that I fish that I have caught Pike in while Bass fishing as well, they are always super aggressive too, but usually only hit my cranks and silver/brass spinners. Several times my boys will have a Perch or Blue gill on their line and while bringing it in (fish fighting) we’ve had Pike come up and hit the hooked fish….
