OK, so this is a bit ‘left field’ but I saw this big pink coloured artificial squid advertised and I thought it might work for pike. I know what you are thinking – Pike live in fresh water and have never seen a squid, pink or any other colour for that matter. But I will give it a try and see if the toothy green lads respond to it.
I bought it for a fiver from a bloke in Oldham on ebay. When it arrived I decided the hooks were wrong so I changed them. They looked too small for the size of the lure to me. There is a second treble lurking in amongst those tentacles.
