Episode #370 One-Two Punch for Giant Pike

Today the Mercury Marine Destination takes us up to Northern Saskatchewan.

Big Pike can really test your equipment, so make sure you are ready when they answer the call.  Favourite presentations are always a good way to start, but if you want to maximize your opportunities… especially with monster Pike, be ready with a second presentation.  Giant Pike are not always aggressive, but when you have a lazy follow or see an inactive lunker, a handy finesse presentation can turn a great day into one you will never forget.  Put everything in your favour and get ready!!
