Northern Pike

The Sioux narrows is a great area to target northern pike with all of the bays, channels, islands and points.  There are so many places to fish out of the wind that you can usually still find plenty of pike even on windy days.  You will find plenty of vegetation here in the bays that you should easily be able to find plenty of pike willing to bite.  Because the water is clearer here, some fish can be more spooky than on other areas of the lake.  Heavy flourocarbon leaders will get you more bites than the traditional steel leader that most anglers use when fishing for northern pike.  You also may have to fish a little deeper at times, especially on sunny days.

Anglers do report catching good numbers of pike here and fish up to and above 40 inches are caught here every year.
