Absolutely it would. I know a couple of people with that rod, and that's exactly what they use it for. Pike and Bass.Hi,
Just wondering if the Orvis clearwater #9 would be suitable for pike fishing (as well as general saltwater use).
Thanks in advance!
For pike the choice of rod is often secondary to the choice of line. You want something at the top end of the AFTM rating and with a short and aggressive taper. Mike Barrio makes very good ones...
