The cranks that have worked for me the best this year are shad raps and jointed shad raps, hands down.

Caught quite a few mid to nice sized pikers on Grandma crankbaits white out muskie fishing. Caught a few on the 7 1/2 inch model early in spring, but more came on the 9 inch model. Most of the pike came natural colors, lots came on black holoform.

I will say they'll eat a lot bigger baits than the 9 inch Grandmas too...

My best luck on norderns has been with husky jerk-baits in "clown" and "crawfish". Both are discontinued. Only got a few of each left.

Lipless cranks shallow and DT-16's or DT'20's later in the summer. Pike also really like Minus ones ... so much so that they'll take them from time to time.

It's doubtfull that there has ever been a crankbait made that a Pike won't hit from time to time.

Minnow style baits like the Husky jerk, Rouges and the oringinal floating Rapalas, can be stone killers on Pike of all sizes.

Magnum Shadraps have always been one of my favorite baits when it comes to catching large

Pike. I also catch a lot of big Pike when I'm out chasing after Muskies. They really seem to like that same minnow profile, regardless how large the bait or the fish is.

Kick'n minnows and it's not even close. Perch and firetiger.

For deeper runners we used to cream them on the Tubby Eel. I don't think they're made anymore. The big Bagley diving stick bait was good for bigger gators too.
