Unweighted Northern Pike Streamers
I use a light wire black nickel Premium 5/0 hook. No lead wire. Dressing is the same as the weighted version. Any game fish will “hone” in on this baby; it appeals to all! A big easy meal.
My son Steve wanted something to fish big Northerns in shallow water bays in early Spring. With his inspiration, I made some-up for him to try. It sinks very slow, flat, and horizontally, unlike the fall of a jig. It remains in line of sight for a long time. The slightest “twitch” and hold on.
When he lost the last streamer on a huge fish he said “I would have given $25.00 for another one!” – Jimmy D.
