Wabigoon Lake Northern Pike Fishing Tips & Map of Pike Hotspots

Spring & Early Summer: Just like the Walleyes, they are near the feeder creeks and the shallow weed beds. Mid-sized crank baits, spoons and buck tails work well. You can troll crank baits on the weed lines or cast the spoons or buck tails into the weed beds, due to the colder water temperatures it is good to cast slower moving bait at this time of year. Find buck tails with large Colorado blades that allow you to retrieve them slowly and still maintain some flotation.

Late Summer and Early Fall: This is when you have a chance to catch a real hog. The pike really start to pack on the weight now. They love spinner baits buzzed over the weeds as well as larger crank baits, or jerk baits. The biggest mistake people make when fishing pike on Wabigoon is they don't fish shallow enough, 1 to 5 feet of water is perfect
