If I have a choice of takin my jon boat on a local river or wading in a local river over hittin flatwater for lmb, I seem to always go for the moving water.

Tie for others as you would tie for yourself.

|I guess not many have caught these. ...SNIP... These three were my legal limit for the day, but I caught 24 others, of similar size, that same morning! These three are 12lb, 11lb, and 12lb. For phisical reference, the reel is a Tibor Riptide that is 4" wide.|
Yes indeed, I love those Ohio River wipers. Here is a fine 6lb fish taken on my spinning rod. They are quite tough and lot's of fun on the long rod. It almost makes me pine for the chills of October!

|In my experience I've never seen a pike go airborn, seems like they always dive. Musky on the other hand will try some smallmouth like acrobbatics to get off your line|
I have had them follow a fly up over my head.
I was wading and at the end of a retrieve when I picked the fly up off the water, a pike followed it off the water, seeing it speed up and thinking that the fly was going to get away.
I've had this happen several times.
No, I didn't catch the fish.
