    Hey everyone, I'm heading up around Ft. St. John or Dawson creek area for an elk hunting trip in about a week. We might take one or two afternoons and try to find a decent size pike. I have never fished for pike ice or not so I have no idea what to try? Anyone have any tips on lures or legal bait that might work. Thanks in advance for any tips!!

    Not to sure if you can dead stick bait, but that under a tip up. Also, just jigging with big spoons.

    Standard cup of frozen minnows on a jig head (white or green) always worked for me. They could be used on tipups or jigged. Let the jig sink to the bottom then reel up half a turn and jig away.

    Anchovies or herring work well, a double hook set up so the bait has a curl so you get some action while you jig. Spoons work. Gibbs, lucky strike, FST, Williams Wobbler...
