Serious line twist commonly results from fast trolling live baits. Add a Snap-Loc® to the eye of your swivel and you reduce line twist to a minimum. As a bonus, it’s easy to control depth by simply snapping on different, or additional, Snap-Locs®.

Pike are sight feeders, so it pays to use flashy baits such as spoons and buck tail spinners.

Young Jack of Monticello, MN is all smiles after Karen lands this nice 25” walleye in northern Minnesota. After a few quick pictures, the fish was released and will hopefully bring as much enjoyment to another person if caught again.
