    Re: Sacramento river, live pike minnows.

    I used one once years ago. Got me a 35 inch striper in about a foot of water. The pikeminnow was too big to cast any further. I took the striper home and we ate it... last time I do that

    I've never managed to catch a pike minnow but have seen how successful they are. Saw a guy catch 2 keepers, a 24'' and a 26'' in 10 minutes with the same damn pike minnow.

    I just caught a pike minnow. How do you rig them for striper?

    No one here wants to see pics of squaw fish, don’t understand why you posted them. We would like to see pics of the 20+ lb strippers though. Trust me they won’t start a frenzy.
