just wondered would you guys rather fish a runs water ie plenty of jacks and a bit of action or sit it out for hours on end and wait for one decent fish if your lucky type of water .The last couple of sessions have been blankers just need a bend in the rod.........

i stopped fishing for pike on the broads was mainly lack of accessibility you really need a boat in my opinion to get the best from them
by changing to the fens where i can target my favorite species i know i,ll catch pike with out specifically targeting them , so i get the best of both worlds plus there is virtually no restrictions on the drains for accessibility and i can just walk for miles if i wanted looking for my quarry and lastly i think its much better there is no boats on the drains Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Big girls waters for me. I've caught enough jacks to do me a lifetime and the rest. Like Noodle I spent 4 years on a water trying for some big fish and only caught a handful of small jacks in that time. Then in one day I wobbled a perch and caught 3 doubles in 9 casts.

I'd rather sit it out and blank endlessly in the hope that I pick up a big fish. Pike should only make up 3% of the biomass of a water so they shouldn't be thick in the water anyway. A jack water or a runs water has a problem and I'm not into fishing problem waters.

If ploughing through jacks appeals to you, then fine but I'd rather fish in a water with a healthy but small population of pike. That's where the big girls come from.

There Is still a lot of these waters across the shire, they have thought it was a good idea to gill net the water to put their precious trout. Now 10 years on they have no trout and a loch that's mo good to man nor beast cause it's littered with jacks and micro jacks.
