Question pike near reddeer

Just wondering how the pike fishing is for everyone near reddeer? ive been out close to 10 times and got skunked everytime so far except for once at sylvan where i got a walleye.

ive been to sylvan and buffalo lake
does anyone know of any other good pike fishing lakes i can try?

any other ideas for lures? ive tryed spoons, jigs with minnows and smelts. larger J hooks with smelts. rapala sinking lures. any help would be greatly appreciated

The last 4 times to Pine Lake I have been skunked. Fished the north end, by scottys, and the south. Not sure I'll be back this winter if I don't have to

the blue green algae only thinned out a few walleye. I was talking to a couple of guys yesterday and they were only catching pike. Not sure where they were but they said it was good fishing

^^haha.
Theres some big pike in there its not loaded with pike but there are pike in there. brown trout that got into the pond from the river and used to be stocked with bows. im guessing there could be walleye and other gamefish too from the RDR but mainly just suckers came in.

worm on bottom, my method of choice. dickson trout pond is a good spot if you need suckers with a chance at rainbows
