Favorite Rapala for Pike

Recommended Posts

Wondering what Rapala people are using in the Wisconsin/Minnesota or Midwest area for Pike.  I hear a lot of fishermen use a J11/J13 jointed Gold Fluorescent Red minnow.  Is this a good choice?, or would a F13/F18 Firetiger original floating minnow be a better option?.

I have never heard of the gold flourescent red minnow but the firetiger and clown patterns have always been deadly for pike. #12 and #14 huskyjerks are always winners year round especailly in the spring and fall. Jointed rapalas are a great choice in the heat of the summer. #11 and #13 should work fine.

I go north in June and always do well on firetiger topwater thundersticks. Just twitch them and hang on.

Big huskey jerks. I like firetiger colors, but try something flashy as well, i have done good with gold/black ones. A little secret i have heard is that pink is absoloutley deadly when it comes to pike

I will be trying a big X Rap this year on my home lake.  Husky Jerk would be a great way to go. I have always had success with sliver and black back, firetiger is also a good choice.

A number 10 perch X Rap. However any number 11 or 13 jointed rapala is a close second.
