Hi guys, its been a while since I was last here!
Think the draw of the carp was to blame but this year due to some serious flooding on some of the day tickets I fish and looking over some photos of Pike on facebook the draw was too much to handle! lol Laughing


So last week I dug my pike gear out from under the dust covers and got ready for my first session in 2 years.
I'd decided on a roving approach so lightened my load as much as possible including treating myself to a new lighter chair.
On arrival I found quite a few pegs flooded so opted for my second choice and set up.
At 10.30 after a few casts to different areas of the swim I had my first run which resulted in a 7.5lb Pike. I was well happy after such a break from the pike fishing.

After another half hour I moved swims and within 20 minutes had a small jack of around 4lb, but was later gutted when I lost a bigger fish half way in after fishing on the far bank.

I moved again at 1.30pm and no sooner had I sat down after connecting up the fox indicators than I had another on! Weighed in at 9lb. This was turning out to be quite an event for me!
About an hour later I had a knock on the right hand rod but nothing further.

It was now 3pm and I decided to double back on myself and fish some other spots, where I bumped into our bailiff doing his rounds who stopped and had a good natter with me. Within 15 minutes the left hand rod was away and I knew it was the best fish of the day and was over the moon when it weighed in to 14lb 4oz. A new PB.

The light was now fading and I wasn’t bothered about any further action as today had truly been a red letter day for me Smile

Now looking forward to some more pike sessions and posting on the forum cheers
