Found a good article online -

Beginners guide to Pike Fishing, Part 2 - Baits, Rigs and Tactics
By Tony Stone
Baits

Knowing what baits to use when targeting pike can be difficult, a bait that works one day may not work the next.

I always carry a selection of baits with me, most can be purchased from your local tackle shop, there are online companies such as www.baitsdirect.com or you could try your local fishmongers, here you can buy bulk bags of herrings, sardines, larger mackerel baits for cheaper than tackle shop or mail order prices.

Below is a small list of baits that are always in my bait bag, I use other baits too, but this small list will get you started as they are proven fish catchers

* Roach - A great natural bait that pike are used to eating. This makes a really good live of dead bait.

* Mackerel - This is an all time classic bait. Silvery/blue in colour. Great oily smell that leaks into the water. Cast out a mackerel and watch the water, the flat spot appear on the surface. Its tough skin makes this a very good casting bait.

* Smelt - Beige in colour, the smelt has a cucumber smell that pike find hard to resist. A great bait for wobbling or fished on the bottom.

* Sardines - Cheap and very easily available, you can buy a bag of them for around £3 from a fish mongers containing around 20 baits. This bait is best fished at close range once defrosted as the skin is very soft and will not withstand a long cast without being tied to the trace. If you want to fish these at any distance, they are better used frozen.

* Herrings - Another soft skinned bait, but more durable than sardine. Has a silvery/beige colour to it. This bait accounted for my first 20lb pike.

* Rudd - Similar to roach, natural food for the pike, make good wobbling baits and great ledgered live baits as they are a surface feeder, so they will continually swim upwards from the bottom.

* Perch - I have not used perch a lot. Mick Brown rates them very highly. Don't worry about the spiky dorsal fin, the pike isn't worried. Definitely a bait I should use more often

* Trout - excellent bait used live or dead. They make hardy live baits and they will tow a float around all day if hooked correctly. Another good bait for wobbling, but must be used freshly killed as they go stiff quickly, pike will still take them like this though. Some waters provide trout live baits for sale during the winter, and although these can be expensive at around £1 each, they make very good baits.

* Lamprey - An Eel like bait, can be cut into 3 of 4 sections depending on the overall length of the bait. Best fished in 6-8 inch pieces. This bait will leak blood for hours, a great bait for rivers as the blood creates a scent trail through the water.
Allow more blood to escape by putting slices on the side of the bait. Has accounted for fish over 40lb

* Eel - Similar to Lamprey. although not as bloody. These baits can be a god send if you are getting plagued by Eels on other dead baits, as Eels wont eat there own. So one to bare in mind if you fish the lakes or places where Eels are active at night.

These are the main baits I would recommend, with this small list it should provide you with enough of a variety to get you started.
