I'm going Pike fishing in the dead stream between Houghton lake, MI and 127. It has murkey waters, with channels about 6-8 ft deep x 20 ft across, running through a flood plain thats almost always has about 2 ft of water in it. What is the best lure or live bait to use? What part of the channel should I fish in? Any tips or tricks? Ive only reeled one pike out of here before, and I took it with a pike minnow. I mostly just wind up with bass or dog fish on my line.

There isn't a technique that exists that is so good it'll work anywhere. There are so many variables on each and every water that you can fish for pike for years, telling yourself you have it all sussed and then you fish an unknown water, try all your best tricks, fail miserably and then watch someone come along using a method you dismissed a long time ago.

All you can do is pick up tips and try them and try your best to improve you game as you go along. There are few shortcuts in fishing.

Also, what I do regularly might be of no use to you. If I said I fish with wild brown trout as deadbaits and old (discontinued) Abu Jointed Terminator lures, would you be able to obtain either?? Possibly not, so what works for me might be useless to you.

You have to read a lot of threads on forums including the ones that don't immediately grab your attention and when you read about something you think you can apply, try it out or adapt it to suit.

Very Happy Very Happy Must be an estuary where the river runs into the sea, Cant be bad getting an odd Bass or Rock Salmon instead of a pike, Thing is as the tide turns and the salty water starts to run in your Pike will also start to move up-stream again, they can swim in the briney water but they dont realy like to, It would then be best fishing for pike as the tide is ebbing, And you will have around 6 hours Fishing,, Very Happy Very Happy
