Afternoon/evening spearing


Recommended Posts

How late do you guys sit. Tonight as it was getting late I watched as the bottom of the lake started to fade into darness and as I pulled up my decoy to see it better I thought 1 last jig then I'll head out.

I did that and Pow a pike Zooms in and missed my decoy and just hoverd there.

I usually dont stay that late and like mornings better but I have seen a lot of pike later than I ussually do.

I know a couple guys that will sit until they can't see the decoy but I don't do that.

Seems like the pike I have seen over the years like the light. 8 am to 10 am and 2 pm to 4 pm are the hottest times although I have seen them up to dark.

Years with a lot of snow, I have cleared the snow around my house about 10 yards or so (keeping the house banked in) to maximize light penetration trough the ice. Seems to help with pike who are sight oriented. I imagine them cruising through dark waters until they see a light from above illuminating my decoy and minnow.
