I tend to think the old spoons, like the good old red and white are still a sight for sore pike eyes.........in our lakes up here anways (Saskatchewan). 

I've found at my camp, that a Ruby eye (scarlet eye) or a fire tiger rappalla work the best. Not sure how old they would be or when they came out. It always seems when nothing seems to excite a good old pike, the good old standbys (usually rusted a little) come out from the bottom of the tackle box and seem to get some action.

How about a Flat Fish?  They were hot back in the 50's.  I haven't seen one, save my own, in years.  Does anyone else still have or use them?

for pike, no clue. for lakers, OMG YES!! I rarely fish for pike but one remote resevoir near me is loaded with big pike and pickerel you can catch all day from shore if you're throwing a black 5o' diamonds.

Spoons have caught me most of my biggest pike.  I jig them under the boat, cast them, tip them with a shiner.  They always produce fish.

Grampa was a Dutchman, the tradition of pike fishing came with him from the old world.

That's awesome, mine too. 

I never got out to chase esox with him, but I know where my pike addiction comes from.  Finding my Grandfather's old metal tackle box in our barn as a kid was like discovering a museum.

I'd give anything to get some of those Creek Chubs and old balsa lures back that I used as a kid.
