Northern Pike are found in multiple lakes across Pennsylvania, but how do you catch one? The best time to fish for pike is May as the fish recover from spawning and move into swallow waters to feed. Focus on this aggressive feeding pattern with a heavy weight rod spooled with at least 20lb braided fishing line. For greater success, a steel leader will ensure you land more fish. Live bait work best, matched to the waterway and feeding patterns. Large inline spinners and spoons also produce pike if thrown in yellow, white or red colors.
