Spinnerbaits are some of the best lures to use for northern pike fishing. The nice thing about spinnerbaits is that they work well around scattered weeds and lily pads where northern pike are often cruising around looking for their next meal. Many lakes that have northern pike also have largemouth bass. Spinnerbaits work great for bass, so these lures are great lures to use when both species of fish are in the shallows. Work these lures slow with a steady retrieve in the 2 to 12 foot range around shallow water cover and you will catch plenty of pike.
