I don't do much pike fishing, and most that I catch are on bass lures and not intentional, including topwater plugs. A friend of mine uses orange spinnerbaits, another uses white, for pike. So try casting those colors near summer lily pads.

An old-timer told me to use big lures for big fish when chasing Durant tiger muskies. It worked and I hooked one a few summers ago on a big perch imitation top-water bait that I was dragging behind my kayak. I lost the fish at the boat, but it was exciting.
Life's short, hunt hard!
