Hello All - I'm new to the forum and to pike fishing so I just wanted to say hello and try asking for a few tips. I'm mainly into shore fishing, though I have recently started a bit of fly fishing and have also just bought a kayak. I spent a lot of time plugging for bass last summer, with little success, and the idea of trying for pike using similar methods appeals. I'm based near Richmond North Yorkshire and am happy to travel to find fishing, so here's the request for help. Can anyone suggest a location to have a go for a pike, is it worth trying lures at this time of year or is to early in the year and finaly if lures are no good what should i be doing. Thanks in advance for any help,
cheers
Jack

Hi Jacko, I am from Darlington, now living in Lincolnshire, so I know your neck of the woods very well, there are some decent spots in your area, it may be a good idea to join the Pike Anglers Club, I think they meet near Darlington, but their web site would be a good start. I am through in a couple of weeks, I will contact a few guys who may be able to point you in the right direction, good luck Very Happy
