Here is a 55 inch monster. Read what the guy said about lures ...big lure=big fish. Essentially pulled that fish out of 12 acres lake.

The height of tail fin in last pic translates to almost 14 inches ...

My new favorites might be the new Rapala Otus and Peto. They look great. I picked some up to test out this season, so we will see!

I did add 5" fat curly tail grubs with a skirt to the weedless spoons and changed the treble out to a 5/0 siwash hook on standard Big Doctor P285 models for easy hook removal.

The firetiger pattern was on fire. The beat up spoon was after just one week of fishing on the trip. The hammered nickel pattern produced my personal best pike of 45". That spoon has officially been retired and replaced

All day long, Doctor spoons and Johnsons trimmed in something. Getting the hook out is the most important key in keeping those big girls alive.

Did you have any success with the Peto and Otus? I am curious if they are worth the price. They look great, that's for sure.

The OTUS worked great at Taltson. They can be fished slow or fast and allow you to stop and go if the fish is chasing. We only had the larger size ~9in as I think the 5.5in are new for 2020. The Blue with pink tail worked out to be the best color. Of course now the 4 of us have like 20 of the darn things going into Cree in June. It was like 6 of 51 over 40 on them.

I can attest they worked pretty well. As you said pricey.

I’ve had good luck with a Savage Gear 6” slow sinking, line-thru trout, which works great with a homemade fluorocarbon or titanium leader. Weather/seasonal conditions aside, my other favorites are a 1-1/8oz chrome trout JSM tipped with a white 3.5” grass pig, jighead w/ a large white grub, Mepps #5 Aglia single or double, white spinnerbait, 1oz Dardevle or Dardevle cop-e-cat, and a floating Rapala.

I caught some walleye on them, lol. Unfortunately, my more pike focused trip was in the early spring last year and I did not bring them. My fall trip was mostly walleye, but I did toss them out for a bit and caught walleye. I like them. They will work for sure. I don't think they are super expensive when compared to similar lures, still not cheap though.

This year they are coming with me to North Caribou in the fall. So, they will get a lot more use for sure! I will let you know.

For years my got to was a #4 or 5 mepps with a white tail,Iíd save the tails from deer I shot to tie them up on plain mepps.more recently itís been a paddle tail swim bait thing for my son and me,we fish them with the lightest jig head we can,u can tease even the most finicky pike with them.at lac Evans this year we did great with the old Johnson silver minnow with a skirt and a grub,awesome action through the grass and lilies,pike just inhale them.My new go to for big pike is an Firetiger Lindy M and G spinner bait.that lure has caught some hog Muskie for me over the years,sheís definitely showing some wear and should be in my personal hall of fame for fishing lures,totally deserving retirement but u canít get them any more and itís such a big esox catcher.i got my eye on some replacements in Rollie n helens catalog!
