Here in Florida we don't have Pike. We have fish that are called Pickerel. They Look similar to the pike but are a different species. There are two species of Pickerel in Florida, the Chain Pickerel and the Redfin Pickerel. Try using live Shiners and also a number of Bass lures will work. Like plugs, spinner baits, weedless spoons, surface plugs, crankbaits and jigs. The best place I found to catch them is in the canals that connect the lakes in Kissimmee/St. Cloud. The largest Pickerel I caught was 24" on a live Bluegill. I was fishing a large Hydrilla mat in lake Toho.
