Bass Shad

Where do I cast to catch a Northern Pike?

In the weeds? deep water? structures like a dock or log?
If anybody has any good lure suggestions for northern OR bass please send them.

Hey Kyle, it seems that me & you have lots in common! (I read your "about me")

There's just TOO many bass lures to tell you about. I'll just label each bass lure I can think of and tell you when & where is the best time to fish with them...

Spinnerbaits -- Comes in sizes from 1/8oz to 1oz. These work best in Fall when Bass are getting fat for the winter. They're mainly used to cover lots of water and I prefer fishing them around submerged wood. You can "slow-roll" them in Winter by just reeling them in fast enough to get the blade spinning. Colorado blades work best in murky water, Willows work best in clear water, and Colorado/Willow tandems work best if you can't make up your mind! (LOL) Chartreuse for muddy water, chartreuse w/ white for stained water, and white for clear water.

Buzzbaits - Comes in sizes from 1/8oz to 3/4oz. These seem to work best in warmer months or when Bass are hitting shad near the surface. These lures work well in submerged wood as well. You can cover a lot of water with these too. Just reel them in fast enough for them to "break the water". Black works fine on cloudy days and white on sunny days. You might even opt for chartreuse in muddy water...

Crankbaits - Sizes from 1/4oz to 1oz. Crankbaits, IMO, work best in deep, clear water. There's shallow-diving Crankbaits, mid-diving Crankbaits, and deep-diving Crankbaits. Just reel them in at a solid, moderate pace to give the lure a swimming action. Shad colored baits (silver, blue, white, gold) work good in clear to stained water, but in stained water I like firetiger or chartreuse. There's also lip-less Crankbaits which work best in muddy water. Just fish these out in the open.

Soft plastics -- Whether it's a lizard, worm, or crawdad, you fish them mostly the same. Texas rig 'em, Carolina rig 'em, Drop shot 'em, Split shot 'em, there's many ways to fish them. Most common sizes are 4" to 7" but sizes as much as 16" can be used! Dark colors for dark water, light colors for clear water. If it's really muddy, use a dark worm with a chartreuse or fire tail.

Topwaters -- Poppers & Spooks. 1/4oz to 1oz or more. Just "walk-the-dog" on the retrieve. Colors aren't that important but I stick with "Baby Bass", "Tennessee Shad", and other bass/shad colors. With poppers you can also just pop 'em a few times and let them sit.

Swimbaits - Soft ones can be used in very clear water when Spinnerbaits don't produce. Fish them out in the open. Hard swimbaits are most commonly used in California for big bass, these baits range from 5" to 16" and weigh 1 to 10 oz's! Just cast and retrieve either one of them.

There's others but I think I covered the most common...

And for Pike a 3/4oz Spoon or In-Line Spinner will work.
