I went to  Northern Saskatchewan last year in mid August. We used a large (I think 1 oz) Johnson silver Spoon trailed with a pink or white 6" Sluggo. It was a great trip.......enjoy your time there!

I fish up in Canada every year. Over in eastern Onterio mainly for bass, but pike are always fun. Get some big yellow spinnerbaits, that is what we use when every we want to catch some pike up there. Burn them fast over weed beds. We also catch alot on Big O's, smokey Joe color, but they are hard to get out of their mouth and lose alot of them. The spinnerbaits are easy to get out. They punish them. after a few pike the baits will start to staighten out. I stopped buying good expensive ones, because of how many I lose up there. I just buy the cheep $1.99 at Dicks and they work good for a few fish. and if you lose one, its only $1.99 not $6 or $7. Get your self a good set of long pliars and if you can get a cradle net, it make netting them so much easier. Or make one, I did and it easy.

Don't forget steel leaders.  Pike will eat anything.  That time of year the big ones will be pretty deep.  We troll deep diving tail dancers and shad raps and have had good luck.  If you just wanna catch fish and are not looking for record sizes, then I agree with the other guys. Spinnerbaits over weeds will catch em all day, but I think I've caught pike on 90% of the stuff in my tackle box.  Don't be afraid to bust out a lipless crank or chatterbait if the spinners aren't doin it. Most importantly, enjoy the peace and quiet.  Where we go fishin is about an hour from cell phone reception. Gotta love that. :)

Lake of the Woods, last August: big, black Senko's and Dingers were the ticket. Let "em sink on the outside edge of the weeds, and don't let the fish run with them. They will swallow a senko, so set the hook quick. You can get the hook out their gut with the In Fisherman method, but you will get bloody doing it. It WILL be your blood. Trust me on that.

Cheers,

GK

i always used inline bucktails...but they are pricey...and definetly steel liters...their teeth are like razors....i cought about a 24 inch pike and gave it to a guy cuz he wanted to eat it...he put it on one of those rope stringers...few minutes later, the fish was gone and the guy had a crap stringer....and they love the banjo minnow, if you can get your hands on the real big ones like 7 inches or bigger...have fun they are a blast to catch!

I can't recomend spinnerbaits enough.  They are perfect pike baits.  We had good succses with red ones last year, but I don't think color matters.  Just simply cast and retreive around weads.  Topwater baits are also a lot of fun.  Good luck!

We always had success with the original floating Rapala size F11 and F13. The jointed ones worked well also.

I used to fish for northerns while I was stationed at Minot ND, and spinnerbaits were the best I found. Buzzbaits were a real blast though! Nothing like seeing the wake of a 30" fish coming up on your buzzbait from behind!

I never went for size on those, but I must have caught hundreds of those things, and all of them on spinners and buzzbaits meant for bass.

Just pop by Wal Mart and pick up about 20 of their $1 spinners. I would stick with white and chart.

I use Terminator 1/2oz Firetiger spinnerbait with double willow leaf blades, silver and copper. I've caught over 25 Pike this year in 5 Days using those. I had the biggest follow of my life using that. I did the figure eight and he chomped the whole thing, but missed the hook because it is on the bottom half. If I could have landed him, he was going a have a Replaca of the wall!
