Targeting Big Pike

The big northerns are out there...you just need to know how to look.

Nick Johnson may be a walleye pro, but in the summer he knows how to find BIG northern pike, especially on the river.

Here he's guiding North American Fisherman's Steve Pennaz on the Mississippi River, and they are finding the lunkers that dwell away from the younger 'snake' northerns. There is a pattern to finding the really big ones.

They show you how to do it and the gear you'll need to wrangle these big guys into the boat. You may want to eat your Wheaties before heading out after this bite.
