Salmo Pike Crank Bait
Pike Crank Bait
Pike is one of the oldest models in the Salmo family. It is impossible to count the number of huge specimen pike caught on this lure. This versatile crankbait is offered in a number of sizes and depth patterns. In 9, 11, 13 and 16 cm sizes and as a shallow runner (SR), floating (F), deep runner (DR) and super deep runner (SDR) and in one or two piece jointed body versions (J).
All floating models from the Pike family are first class for fishing in bank-side shallows on lakes at depths from 0.5m (the Pike 9F and Pike 11F) down to 3-4m (the Pike 9SDR and Pike 16F). Like all the Pike lures it is best to retrieve the Pike 13 Jointed slowly but with some speed variations and frequent pauses. In large rivers cast downstream and retrieve against the flow, allowing the lure to stop occasionally close to bank features and over submerged vegetation where predators may be hiding.
