Well, me and my mate went up on the Broads yesterday off a boat. Bloody useless !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Tried everything. Deads, livebait, spinning, lures. The whole day ended up with 1 pike of 6lb...........caught on my Double Livvie rig. Not a touch on a single livvie. How strange.

To cap it all, i badly hurt my back at work on the Weds. Thought it would ease off by the morning..................NO !!
Back was going into Spasm every 10 mins, but stuck the whole day out as it was our last chance before season end and didnt wanna let my mate down.

He had to help me out of the boat, i then had to lie on the platform for 10 mins until i could move again ! My mate was creasing up although he knew i was in a great deal of pain. Rotten sod !!

Bitterly disappointed as i thought we would have a great days piking. There was only one other jack caught further up the river. Poor old day really.

Not quite as good a session an psion had, but not too bad either. Between the 2 of us we finished the 8 days fishing with 2 blanks!!!, 126 takes, 71 Pike landed and the 4 biggest fish being 19lb, 18lb 4oz, 18lb and 17lb. These norfolk boys can certainly catch Pike Wink
