trying to catch pike from beneath the ice

Recommended Posts

We would like to try catching pikes during the winter season.

Wheere usually pikes are spending winter time.

The lake that we use to catch pikes is long and deep, and even in a summer season water is cold (around 15 degrees).

Should we look for it in a deeper water , or maybe around anderwater hills?

 

Plz help.

Most of my winter pike have been caught at fairly shallow depths, 2-6 meters or so.

I would think that at least at part of the pikepopulation is living pelagic in your lake. So I would set the bait at 2-4m of depht, no matter how deep it is to the bottom of the lake. The pelagic pike almost everytime attcks from underneath. 

Settiing the bait just under the ice also works well i more shallow and muddy lakes. For the same reason as obove.
