Mule-sized Pike

There's nothing like tying into a really big pike.

Fishing pro Nick Johnson is on the trail of big pike on a wide spot of the Mississippi in Minnesota. He's showing off his favorite spot for big northerns to Steve Pennaz, and they found the key to finding these lunkers in the relatively cool water near an inlet.

It can be hard to find the really big pike in many fisheries, and Nick offers up his technique for finding and catching these monsters. As summer approaches, you might find these tips as useful as anything in your tackle box.
