Northern Pike in the Fall
By: Bob Jensen , Fishing Buddy
Many anglers look forward to the outstanding fishing action that is available in the fall season. Largemouth bass and smallmouth bass are popular targets in many areas. Bass are equally popular in the Midwest, as are walleyes, perch, crappies, and even muskies. A species of fish that’s often overlooked, but can be very accessible in the fall are northern pike. Anglers can catch lots of small northern pike throughout the year, but oftentimes the truly big ones are hard to find. October and early November can be a great period of time to catch northern pike that qualify as trophies.
