For northern pike, I'd head up to Lake Champlain in the fall, probably in September. Call Captain Mickey Maynard. He's the best. He has a nice cottage where you can stay, too. Here's a link to his website:

Here are a couple of northern pike and a couple of northern pike/chain pickerel hybrids that we caught on our first charter with him (that's him in the photos with my daughter):

Phil,

How aggressive were those pike/pickerel hybrids vs an average chain pickerel and northern pike?

The hybrids are the best of both worlds, Michael. They're almost the size of a northern pike and have the aggressiveness of a chain pickerel. Unlike pike, they make more than two or three big runs after you hook them. And they're prettier, too! Very Happy

After we boated 70 bass and pike in 2 days in September with Mick, i'm booked for late May for lakers/pike in 2013. Can't wait to go back!

Then I'm sure I'd love to get into those hybrids! You know how much I love hitting those pickerel and their aggressiveness compared to a pike.
