While i'd congratulate anyone on catching a 30lb, i really think it's more of a myth that they are out there, sadly pike fish are seen by many has a pest( spoiling other fish) which of course is all a load of tosh in my book anyway, but sadly to many other non pikers, they are the pest of pest's. having grown up with my many a mad piker in my family, ive seen a sad decline in numbers of pike for what ever reason, pike fishing in general seems to be on the up, but are there really 30lb pike out there? perhaps some one out may have had the good fortune of catching one,or even two!, but i think overall just that pike are stiill in our waters is a joy.. sunny

I think you have to fish trout waters to be in with best chance. My biggest is 28lb thats from a none trout water. There is one lake I know that MAY do it, am waiting till the new year to have a go. The river Wye turns up a 30 each year.

Put thisi nto perspective

My pac region has 50 members, 9 have had fish over 30, plus maybe 2 others i thnk may have
Only 4 of those have gone public. ah and two have had fish over 40 lb
One also holds the record for biggest brace of pike ever caught.
Oh we are in one of the worst areas for pike Shocked


I once thought i had a 40 but it was a joke, the pike got round a point so ffriend wentoff with net sling etc to land it he did i went round to see him lft the sling the needle went past 40 just.
sling had a rock in the pike was still in the net Evil or Very Mad

My mates had a forty probably the zenith of his fishing career, he now doesnt bother fishing much now. If i named him you would know of him and the fish dunno how i'd feel once i'd caught the biggest pike i was probably ever going to catch.

I think some people can get a bit obsessed about catching a 30lb fish even when they have not been pike fishing for long really it is not that inportant if like me i am just happy catching pike no matter what the size .Yes it is nice to see a big pike in your net and if its a 30lb fish yippee .... but you have got to target the waters that have them in in the first place and they are predominant trout waters and they are no pushover by all acounts as for myself i have not had a 30lb fish but there again i have not been chasing one like i have said before you can only catch what is in front of you on that water , but on the other hand if i lived say next to chew res i would be giving it some attension and probably set my sights on one of the beasts in there . I think if you have the time and the wonga to travel to these type of waters you would get one of these 30lb fish the best fish me todate is 28lb followed half a hour later with a 25lb the best brace at that time i was told was chuffed with that result and on a new venue for the first time.

I haven't Crying or Very sad

Like stubbo says, you'd only be cheating yourself in the end.

My PB is 16lb 8oz weighed with scales that are way out. They were once observed to be weighing 4lb under, so I have a potential PB of 20lb or more.

But seeing as the scales showed 16lb 8oz that is what I claim.

BTW, the scales weren't mine and were only cheapo ones picked up for a couple of quid.
