I don't know about you lot but I am struggling big time at the moment to find any fish. Trying all types of baits and keeping on the move different swims venues the lot, and all I have to show for my endeavours are two tiddlers 2lb or under anger and one about six thats in my last seven outings, I am reckoning that it could be down to the fact that we have not had a real cold snap yet to shoal up the bait fish any ideas.

Stick at it fella, they'l come..just keep doing what you doing, ask about at your venue, on catch reports,etc..See what the other anglers are doing, and if they are catching..It will come.. Neutral Wink Wink

Problem is the where pike anglers are catching is like asking someone to give up their last rolo! You can never find out where to go...

Very Happy

Problem is that I am trying to go where no one else is fishing so getting any ideas is pretty hard, as the way I look at it is that its easy to catch other peoples fish but i have to agree we do need a real cold one to get the silver fish shoaled up.

As soon as we get a real cold snap, i will go to the Broads. The silver fish all shoal up in the boat yards, and of course, the pike follow. Bit of a journey up there from mine, but normally worth it ( havnt fished it in 3 yrs though ).

Lets hope it hasnt gone down hill too much.

Nooooooooooooooooooooooo ice please this year. Dont mind cold.

Used to love fishing the Broads and all the drains but with the cost of fuel nowadays it's only worth my while when I can have a couple of days up there.

Its a great place Silvers. The first time i ever fished it, me and a m8 went out with a guy named Richard Furlong. He took people out Piking. ( he worked with Nashy and fished with a lot of known guys ). We bagged up. It was crazy.

We had 21 pike that day, and 16 over 14lb, biggest ( mine ) 19 1/2lb !!! never had a day like it since.

Had a few twentys over the years from same place, but i think its a struggle now ( so ive heard ).

Great Guy was Richard, poor bloke died of C only late 40's.

Yep, Welsh P, Wroxham is the place. Vast expanse of water but if you know where to fish, you can catch some decent pike.

Me and a mate stayed at a b+b once so we could get 3 days piking in. Thats the best way. Beer and good meal in the evening, then bed ready for an early start. Superb! Very Happy
