Fishing equipment

Pike and pikeperch fishing is done from the boat. Once the ice has melted, the pike can usually be found in shallower sections until autumn. In late autumn the large pike collect in deeper water, swimming under large schools of whitefish. Pike and pikeperch are usually taken via spin fishing, trolling and for pikeperch, vertical fishing. The lures include large jigs, spoons, wobblers, jerk bait and spinners. Perch is primarily taken with smaller jigs, spinners and small wobblers.
