Duane, the chances are many of your lures will be fine, especially the bigger saltwater crankbaits (lipped plugs). Many of the big 'pike' lures we all use have been ripped off from other applications and given a UK freshwater style paint-job to suit our prey species.

If you have Rapala Magnums etc. you're already there.

And yes we do use jigs and Gulp lures. Jigs are a big favourite of mine, especially shads.

I spent the better part of Sunday afternoon chatting to Noodle and the conversation inevitably drifted onto various lures, rigs and gadgets, which I am more familliar with or accustomed to, and which Noodle showed a marked interest in......
Following on from this, I was wondering how the Pike would react to these "badboys"?
They are known as "Kona's" in the part of the world which I hail from and are predominantly used for the likes of Tuna & Marlin but are also readily taken by Dorado and Barracuda. I can't see why they wouldn't work, considering that the Barracuda can be equated to the saltwater equivilent of the Pike..........
or am I just trying to re invent the wheel again??? geek

must admit i wandered about them rigged on wire 3-4 set about 10-20 foot apart to 10 feet 20.30 etc just to get an idea quickly of depths pike may be sitting at in open water situations


never had the balls to try it though Embarassed

They are normally flowen as singles when trolling and must admit that i have never herd of anyone trying to fly multiples???? Shocked
They do put up quite a bit of resistance and are usually considered a topwater lure because of the speed that they are trolled at..........still sure they could be adapted for pike????

Obviously the slower you troll (or retrieve) the Kona, the deeper it will dive under it's own weight.................
This should give you a better idea.............. geek

Me and MBA used them for sailfish / spanish mackeral etc while fishing off the west coast of Australia. I had forgotten about them to be honest. We also used a similar "skirt" fished with a dead bait that was trolled. I think both of these will catch pike. Your lure looks like a fly, except its a bit heavier. How much do they cost and where can you get them? I am interested Cool

Andy, check out the ebay link below which will give you an idea........
http://shop.ebay.com/?_from=R40&_trksid=p3907.m38.l1313&_nkw=kona+lures&_sacat=See-All-Categories

As discussed with Noodle on Sunday, I am also currently looking into some tackle & lure suppliers I know in South Africa as the exchange rate (-ZAR) may be a lot more favourable to us.......... Wink Will keep you guys posted!!!

Here is another deadly lure which I haven't seen being used here........
Called the "Chisel Nose Plug/Popper" and also effectionately refered to as "GT IceCream" due to it's effectiveness on the Giant Trevally...........a surface lure which skitters and pops with an action which game fish can't resist!!! Laughing

I have got an 8/9 weight outfit and a whole bunch of saltwater flys which I have been tempted to use for pike?
