BIG Surprise! Pike Fishing SMALL Rivers

Fishing small rivers in search of some northern pike! With the season closing soon, I figured I better get out while I can. Things started out a little slow, but then I stumbled upon an awesome surprise!

That’s how it is in Minnesota, can’t target bass or pike from March till mid May which really sucks, but all I really want right now is open water, this ice is getting old now! Lol

I'm glad our closed season is fairly short! Hopefully you get some open water soon.. I was starting to get tired of the ice about a month ago!

So the season is closed, yet you are still fishing-targeting large pike? Isn't the season closed?

Dude great video! nice catches. I wish I had some pike near me that i could catch they look so fun!
Viktor Kalaj
Viktor Kalaj - 2 years ago
So if you could help me clear some things up that i don't quite understand...other than throwing a fly, or tying a steel leader or certain pike baits how can you prove you're targeting pike? I know that most lakes around where i live the pike will go for anything (obviously) so like if I'm trying to catch bass with a jerk bait or crank bait and i keep nailing pike how does one get in trouble for it?
P.s. I always practice C.P.R. (Catch, Picture, Release)

And of course awesome vid man, have been getting better and better!
Viktor Kalaj
Viktor Kalaj - 2 years ago
Peelindrag okay that's what i figured, thanks for making it more clear for me. And for the quick response.
Peelindrag
Peelindrag - 2 years ago
Your right, there is no way to completely avoid catching them. These rules are more meant to stop people from intentionally targeting them. You would probably only get in some sort of trouble if you were out there with steel leader throwing big pike baits etc. If you get one on accident they just say to release it right away.

I'm glad you've stuck around! I wouldn't say these rivers are loaded though haha it took me about 3 hours to catch the first 3 pike.. Summer tends to be better fishing for them

Can you target eel? Just for the fun of it :) would make a great video. I do recommend going with a buddy because handling one on your own sucks.
Peelindrag

I'll look into seeing if there are any eel populations in Michigan. Haven't heard anything about them.. That would definitely be an interesting video!

I appreciate the concern! I do use them most of the time, just not when it's on the side of the mouth. You'd think I'd be smarter than that.. I'll try to remember to ALWAYS use them! Thanks for watching!

Don’t worry. Your pike fishing in creeks never gets old. How bout some top water pike this year? Maybe some fly fishing for bass too.

Jerome Torrez BS. Big pikes are incredibly robust. I have been pike fishing for 26 years and had 2 fish that did not make it after the release.
Cod Kue

Pike do a majority of their growth in the first couple years and falls off. Also much of the largest pikes are found in canada, which has a smaller growing season for most fish. Pike aren’t bothered
Peelindrag
Peelindrag - 2 years ago
It swam off strong in the end, so I think it has a good chance of survival. Pike feed aggressively year round though, so I'd imagine they grow year round as well.
Jerome Torrez
Jerome Torrez - 2 years ago
It’s dead you killed it cuz once you rip its gills it’s dead that’s what the bad thing about pike cut the barbs off
Peelindrag
Peelindrag - 2 years ago
None of the hooks were in its gills, never bled at all. I'm not sure why it needed reviving, it didn't fight much either.

Another great one mate! I love the respect you give to the fish you catch, the is a lot of bad videos on you tube but you are definitely not one of them. I'm not sure on the geography of where you live but do you ever do any sea fishing?
Peelindrag
Peelindrag - 2 years ago
I always try my best to show good care for them in hopes that others will follow my example. I don't live near any salt water or seas, but I will be taking a trip in late June that I'll be try to do some salt water fishing at.

Peelindrag maybe, I would do the traditional muskiefishing though:). Get a headbanger lure and begin casting:). I’d love to see you film that experience:)!
Peelindrag
Peelindrag - 2 years ago
I'm planning on doing both of those this year! May even be bold and try musky on the fly just to torture myself

Have you ever tried swapping the trebles for singles? I have and unhooking them is a breeze and I never lose any fish
David Chester
David Chester - 2 years ago
Skylar L hooksets are a breeze the single barbless slide in and slide out very minimal damage to the fish
Skylar L
Skylar L - 2 years ago
David Chester another point to make about barbless for pike is that there is less resistance for the hookset!
David Chester
David Chester - 2 years ago
Peelindrag I also pinch the barbs just in case I happen to take a hook to the finger
kalibercutz
kalibercutz - 2 years ago
I have been doing that when fishing for snakehead here as well. My hookup ratio has increased because the hooktip is longer and can penetrate the Snakehead's mouth easier. The hooktips on trebles are too short to get good hooksets. For pike it's more of a safety thing I guess. When I'm back in Holland I'm going to try using singles on my pike lures as well.
Peelindrag
Peelindrag - 2 years ago
Interesting idea, maybe I'll give it a try when the season re opens!
Benjamin S
Benjamin S - 2 years ago
David Chester you don’t hook them as easly but when you hook them they stay on and unhooking them is esier. You save fish by switching to singles. I recommend that!

If I can barrel through the woods for steelhead with a musky net you can do it for pike.. just saying.. Great video as always man.
Peelindrag
Peelindrag - 2 years ago
I use to do it, but when you net them they thrash around a lot. And with 3 treble hooks in their face it can easily mess up an eye or put a cut in them. Glad you enjoyed the video!
CalebGVS
CalebGVS - 2 years ago
Great video! You always inspire me to go try and catch Pike in my creek. I’ve never caught one yet in there, but I know pike are there cuz of pictures and a dead carcass of one. I haven’t one yet because it’s a very small population and the creek is shallow so very little deep spots.
Peelindrag
Peelindrag - 2 years ago
Keep searching and you'll get one eventually! It'll all be worth it once you finally do.

Definitely try target some more carp. Huge sport in Europe and they fight hard. Love the pike videos. Keep up the good work. Have you thought about using a waterwolf camera with the lures? Love seeing a pike smash into a lure.

I've thought about using them but I wouldn't want to in the rivers. I'd be afraid of knocking it around too much and breaking it
