I never use a lure with a treble hook....I just don't want to risk a deep hook set and damage to the fish. And after trying many many different lures and with about 100 lures lost to structure, now I just use 1/2 oz. spinner baits in either white or chartruse or a cobo of both.
With about 30 pike landed this season so far, in the past 3 weeks, I will stick to what works for me. The low, slow clear water conditions in the past couple of weeks has been great for some crazy action from the kayak.
