As we approach the pike grounds we keep the baits the same but change our trolling speed. Pike like it a bit faster. I have trolled as fast as 3.5 mph in the middle of summer. Today the magic speed was 2.2 mph. Perhaps in such cold water they like it a bit slower. It is very interesting to see how the areas lakers roam and the areas pike roam overlap. If you can hit it just right, you can not only catch a double header of the same specie, but you can catch a double header of both species! Netting them in the same net is very unusual and amazing!
