One thing to keep in mind is that, generally speaking, large pike and small pike hang out in different areas. "Hammer Handles" - small guys in that 18" range are plentiful and are aggressive. You can generally pound these pretty easily. It's hard sometimes to move from these fish when biting to another area.

But if you want the bigger fish then move from these areas and into habitat conducive to big pike. Good luck.

Troll fast slow all day. Fire tiger and gold and black probably works the best in the adk. Go on the hottest days and fish deep structures and big wind on the hot days. Don't need to go any deeper than 15 down with the baits. Long line some back far of a board one in the prop wash don't stop moving. Low pressure days are the best and if it sunny and low pressure even better.

Hey all I’ve been on a hiatus studying underwater basket weaving in the mountains of Afghanistan but I got called back by glen to teach VT how to fly fish. With that being said pike fishing for me is most productive in the morning and in the evening, I like using large spinners and spoons like Mepps and doctor spoons. Fire tiger patterns seem to work really good in shallow weedy areas. Remember take lots of beer with you Busch light is the preferred drink of the superior fish

Pikebuster!!! Welcome back! Glen will never teach me to fly fish so I might as well surrender and fish for the prehistoric fish with you. Busch Lite is a non starter however.
