Yes you are right on the spring pike fishing if you can find the right
lake and bay. They will be spawning and are very aggressive. Dahlbergs and big marabou streamers work well. Another hint fish the lakes northern shallow inlets which will warm faster than the southern inlets. A sunny day of course is best to warm the water. Will need a small boat to fish, I don't think wading from shore will give a large probability of success. Probably an eight weight rod would be best to push through to the wind if needed and land that 10 plus pounder should you hit one

Good luck
