30lb pike afoat

Post  stubbo on Sat Dec 19, 2015 7:36 pm

went out today just to have a play with the fish finder for a few hours....


but ended up chucking out a couple of mackerel tails out in 20 ft water with a massive bait cloud on a feature

well chuffed with the finder and the big girl

sorry about the photo quality but needed to get the fish back as I had a awkward hook up took a bit of work getting trebles out


should have gone ashore to get a better picture as this one does not do it any justice

but the fishes welfare is paramount .......well in [img][/img]

unfortunately I was on my own on the boat and really was not prepared , I was playing around with the new fish finder ,raymarine dragonfly so I was faffing around with that

as I was anchored and had other rods out , thought it was best to return the fish quickly as it had been out of the water for to long .

so I weighed it in the net and took a few snaps but they never turned out very well to be honest , from the photos you cant get the scale of it

hopefully I could catch it again and get some proper photos .........just thought at the time it was better for the fish to return,... it was all a bit hectic to tell the truth.

I take my hat off to you Steve 😊 putting the pike before photos is something a lot of pikers just wouldn't do with a fish of a lifetime like that mate 😊

Don't underestimate the photos
Every time you see them you will remember
The fact you were just playing around
The way it was caught
And the fact it swam away healthy and well because your a good sport
The memory and experience is what we do it for
And it looks massive

Hi all, managed a couple of small ones yesterday, (Sunday), biggest about 9lb, my luck strikes again though, fished one peg down from my uncle who only had 1 but, it was 18lb 14 oz! My time will come, at least I'm catching some 😃
