Ever wonder what it looks like when the northern pike bite your bait. This is the video for you. It shows how a pike reacts to trolling. We were trolling for pike using a big musky crank and other Rapala crank baits near the end.

As much as I love fishing, it's kinda tough to actually see up close and personal the poor things getting hooked! Never looks very pleasant. I think because these were caught trolling they look especially hapless.

Kinda like hunting. It's all great until you see their eyes roll up in their head and their tongues lay out with their last breath.

At least most of these pike were probably back to patrolling the waters in a couple of hours with only a faint memory of that odd shiny, hard, tasteless prey that yanked them out of the water for a few moments! Smile

Now that's cool.

I've never seen these videos where they can actually cast the camera out like that and retrieve the lures.

That would be fun to try but you better have your mask and snorkel ready if you snag on a log!

How much are those cameras?

That is a pretty cool video! I always wondered what a strike would be like when trolling. I was just up to Lake Vermilion a couple of weeks ago and did pretty decent with Pike and Walleye trolling crank baits. I am new to trolling crank baits and so far I am loving it!

I find it interesting that the little snot rockets attacked from nowhere and seemingly without hesitation and the bigger fish all seemed to come in for an inspection and had to think on it awhile before attacking. Thanks for sharing the video.

Ha! That's how they got to be big- just a little more cautious.

Kinda like smallmouth fishing- the eight-inchers are all over your lures while the big ones have to be coaxed a bit sometimes.
