Big Spoons

Big spoons work well for big northern pike. There are several models on the market that work great for casting or trolling.  The 1/2 to 1 ounce sizes will usually be big enough for most manufacturers.  The bigger, heavier spoon also means fishing shallower is tough, so you’re going to be fishing a little deeper water to keep these lures out of the snags and weeds.  The heavier spoons work great in that 8 to 20 foot depth range.  Some models can be fished shallower while others work best in deeper water.
