Environment: Wherever there is bait and fairly warm waters that have cover and the right amount of oxygen, this great sport fish can live over 30 years. Most of your Best pike fishing, is in the Provinces of Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, NWT. And in the US, Michigan-Wisconsin, Dakotas,N. C., S. C., Missouri, And A Few More. If You have a great place, Let me know. Germany(I have a picture of this monster just out of the water-The World Record), England, Holland, Scotland, and Help me OUT HERE!!!. I caught them In Alaska. And a jillion other places in the FAR NORTH of THE NORTH WEST TERRITORES. But My best fishing for pike, was in Alberta.....That is where I learned to become a bigger PREDATOR,... or one mean RAPTER on the loose
Techniques: live bait, casting plugs,spoons,spinners,jigs, and much much more, fly Fishing too, with colors galore. I have used yellow rope to a spark plugs, teasing this great sport fish.
I have practiced more "catch and release" fishing., This is do, to the BIG FISH I caught, and I doubt if I will ever keep another pike in the boat or stringer, unless we are having a ..........FISH FRY.
When I was growing up, the limits were like, 40 fish per angler. And my Dad,Uncles,and myself included,caught thousands of fish over several decades.
We had every kind of hook one could buy, and some that we made. We were down right ruthless when it came down to catching these great sport fish. And they all went to a dinner table.
I kid you not,........ we always caught are limits, every day. When I was 9 years old ....I had landed a 18 pounder......So, if God is up their watching, "You made me a Fishermen". And my mom, a few heart attacks. So MOM it was all Dad's fault, for bringing home a fishing rod. When I was 2 and half years old, My Dad caught me with that fishing rod he brought home,..............and a beer too. Boy did I get it!!!!!!!

How To Clean A Northern Pike
1. First, the back fillet. Set the pike on its belly (swimming position) and cut across the fish straight down to the backbone just behind the head. Turn the knife so that it’s lying flat atop the backbone, with the sharp edge facing the tail. Cut following the backbone until you reach the dorsal fin, then turn the knife and cut up to remove the back fillet. This should also serve to expose the tips of the Y-bones.
2. Now make a cut on each side of the fish behind the gill plate, from the backbone down to the belly. With the tip of the knife, gently separate the flesh from the outside of the Y-bones down to the belly on both sides, starting from the head and ending at the dorsal fin. You now have two more boneless fillets, but you’re not done yet.
3. There’s another set of Y-bones that runs vertically just below the dorsal fin; you’All want to avoid this, too. Put the fish on its side and cut just behind the dorsal fin down to the backbone. Then turn the knife so the sharp edge is facing the tail and cut back along the backbone to the tail. Repeat on the other side and you now have a total of five beautiful, boneless fillets (and don’t leave behind the cheeks).
This method works best with pike about five pounds and over (but please, be sure to release the big bruisers). Once you’Ave mastered this technique, it will change your mind about passing up pike in favor of more easily cleaned fish.
