I just started chasing pike on a fly this year. I fish for them out of my kayak and it is a blast. Getting towed around by a pike is so much fun.

Here is my personal best...

Nice one!
Had one pull me around in my scout float tube earlier in the summer. That one was on a spinning rod though. I seem to have better luck with larger flies and I find it a too strenuous trying to cast them, sitting down so close to the water. I really need to stand while casting for pike. Otherwise I’d do it more like that. It is fun getting towed. Lol

I'll be watching this thread closely.

This summer I'll be going to Northern Saskatchewan for Pike.

This will be my first experience with it.

I can't wait.

There are actually several lakes here in Colorado with pike (some with a bounty on them). I’ve only caught one smallish one on accident, but would love to start targeting them more. Most of these lakes are small enough for my one man pontoon which makes it fun as well.

Late to the party, but the Colville Consolidated Tribes offer $10 / head bounty on Northerns in Lake Roosevelt ( in eastern Washington. ) Northerns are an invasive species there.

Went on my first pike trip with a guide last week. Now I’m looking forward to DYI on local waters. They aren’t everywhere in Ohio but it will be fun exploring. The big smallies will smash those giant flies, too!

I had an epic fly in trip in Northern Alberta through a fly shop here in Calgary. We found a weed bed in the lake that the big pike were cruising around. We used the largest bunny leaches we could tie with 8 and 9 weight rods. We needed the heavy rods to turnover the big lead eyes. The pic with my buddy standing wearing the hat was the first pike he had ever caught on a fly or otherwise. We had 30+ fish over 20lbs, but almost as fun as the big ones was catching the hammer handles on dry deer hair mice back in the lily pads.
