Northern Pike

The northern pike fishing is outstanding on Lake Nipigon.  Come here when water temperatures are cooler in the spring, early summer and later in the fall and you can find a lot more pike in the shallows.  This makes it a lot easier to fish than to wait for mid summer and have to go offshore to fish the main lake structure for them.  If you come here during the peak times, you can find tons of northern pike in the shallows feeding on bait fish.  You will get a shot a trophy fish as well if you target them.  If you are fishing in the summer, fish the deeper waters and look for offshore structure.  Be prepared also because this lake can get dangerous in a hurry.  It is big water.
