I would say focus on weedlines, using oversize spinnerbaits (musky size), 6+ in cranks, and daredevils you can cover water either trolling or casting, it will just depend on how fast you want to move. If you find that the fish are heavily concentrated in an area you could jig them with suckers or a sucker trailer on a spinnerbait. If the fish are deeper I would definitely use crankbaits (thundersticks, jakes, husky jerks). If all else fails get right over the weed tops and troll fast 3-5mph.

Hope you can get something working,

Most big pike I've gotten this time of year have been hanging around somewhere where's there's current. Creek mouths, narrows in impoundments where there is flowage, etc.

I got my lindy rig bit off twice sitting right in the current of the channel that flowed into the lake. I got 2 pike over 30 inches in 3 casts one was in lillys and one by a downed tree in 2-4 feet of water using a mepps a couple wees ago.
