These Pikes are a plug that have been requested many times over the years. I wanted to make sure that they held up to my standards of not only catching fish but to also be a very stable and versatile plug. They will swim from 0 to 10ft deep and will have a more subtle swim than most plugs this size. They measure 8-1/2 inches long, weigh 4.5 ozs, and sport 4/0 VMC hooks. They have a thicker lip to help them to be able to take the abuse that larger fish tend to do to plugs. We tested these last year and could not be happier with the quality and quantity of stripers that we caught and then safely released!
