first make sure you get steel leaders, very important, big bucktail inline spinners, big jerkbaits, big topwaters, big spinnerbaits,,,red and white are always good, orange,yellow...pike will eat anything in my experience...dead smealt and the like work good too under a bobber...or live suckers...big ones....have fun, they are great to catch...very explosive strikes

Northern's can be tough on lures. When I fished for them I used $1.00 special bass spinners and buzzbaits. I never went for the really big ones, but caught a ton of them up to 30".

I didn't need anything bigger or more expensive, and the cheapo lures still caught 15 to 20 of them each.

that is absolutely correct, they will bend hooks and wires, tear up paint jobs, and leave teeth marks on everything...but man they are fun to catch

All the lures mentioned are very good suggestions. In all the years I've fished for pike, one thing I've found to be true is they like bright and gaudy colored lures. Lures with alot of flash.

Good luck, and have fun.

Pike will readily take anything that's in your tackle box now. Topwaters, bottom crawlers and everything in-between. I'd give a tiny edge to spinnerbaits in shallower water and grubs on jigheads in deeper water. And like Torpedo said, use metal leaders, for your sake and the pike's sake. For you so you don't lose lures and for the pike so after it cuts the line it doesn't have to swim around with a mouthful of crankbait.
