Ive had a pike attack my spod as I was bringing it back. The funny thing was the bailiff was stood with me and I had asked him not 10 minutes before if there were any Pike in the venue and he had said no. His face was a picture...

It happens fairly regular whilst trolling floats, sometimes over 100ft of water in the depths of winter. Always makes me jump too Very Happy

Yep, I guess it's not uncommon, JB & I were fishing a local drain a couple of weeks back when he had one that smashed into his float.

He hadn't realised that was what happened until he struck thinking that a fish was on only to retrieve the bait as if nothing had happened. He re-cast and the float sank immediately, reeled in to find it completely trashed. He was using a plastic tube style slider which he now keeps as a talking point, it is completely cracked down one side and has an impressive set of teeth puncture marks.

No happy ending though, the only run he had that morning came off. The language was more colourful than his changed float. Very Happy
