If there is one species of fish that is given a break in the summer, it's definitely the northern pike. Many consider this fish to be a great cold water sportfish, but let me tell you what, it is also an awesome summer sportfish. These pike hit hard, fight hard, and are a lot of fun to catch. That being said, today we visit one of our Central New Jersey rivers to hunt down these predators. We use medium heavy bass fishing gear and rig up live sunfish as bait. Bat fishing for pike is an awesome way to spend an evening, Thanks for watching and I hope you get to go out and explore Central New Jersey for these predators too!
