20 pound fishing lineNorthern pike can get very big and they are very strong, so we recommend using 20 to 30 pound fishing line with a 40 to 50 pound mono or fluorocarbon leader to prevent bite-offs from their sharp teeth.  You can also go with a steel leader as well to prevent bite-offs.  If you are fishing an action lake or river that doesn’t have much trophy potential, you could use 10 to 14 pound line, but you still will need a leader to prevent bite-offs.

If I am just targeting big pike, that will definitely change what baits I will be throwing.  I’m not looking for action at this point, but I do usually choose big fish baits that will still give me some action while searching for the big fish.  These 3 are my go to big pike lures that will still get you plenty of bites in between big fish bites.
