Is there anybody there

Post  td66 on Mon Jun 22, 2015 1:32 pm

Well, I joined this forum a few days ago, posted in the newbie section, had one reply and have checked daily for discussions. Does anyone use this forum or is the wrong time of year. I am so keen to get into piking and advice is to learn from others. So, here goes - I really want to catch on lures but have no idea where to go and what to do. I am in pontypridd south Wales but work all over the UK. Canal piking appeals as does the reports of a moat in a certain cadtle☺but, I don't want to make a fool of myself in public. So I guess what I really want is a kindly soul to take me under their wing and show me the ropes. As I am self employed I can book myself a day off but need about 3 months notice. Evenings are possible depending on where I am working. I await replies with fingers crossed. Thanks for reading. Tim

Sorry its only me again Tim lol. Lots of Pikers on here in the Season sept/March roughly speaking. Many frown on pike fishing if the water temps are over 15C as pike give so much in the fight its thought that they can die after release from exhaustion. Highly contentious and summer piking questions usually end up as a slanging match lol. Try the pikers pit for more info if you dare go there Shocked Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

I caught this one in Ireland back in May. It was the only highlight in a poor week.

Nice fish Psion all the same. I stop after April as the prey fish get spread too far and wide. Feb and March are the best months.
