Fishing Rod & Reel Recommendations

Small to Medium Sized Pike (30″ and smaller)

When fishing on action lakes, you will usually catch a lot of pike in the 16 to 24 inch range with some bigger fish up to 30 inches long.  If you rarely see a pike 30 inches or longer on the lake you’re fishing, then you really don’t need to go super heavy.

Baitcasters and Spinning Gear Both Work

Bigger Pike

If you have a good chance of catching pike above 30 inches with some trophy potential as well, you’re going to want some heavier gear.
