wykeham lake pike shows up after 23 months

Post  stubbo on Sun Jan 10, 2016 9:35 pm

has anybody seen the fish in the anglers mail

46lb 8 oz lump of a fish

wonder why such a big fish like this keeps a low profile and does not get caught often
obviously its a trout water so it will be feeding on trout, but to go that long without capture is a mystery.... any ideas...why on this

any of you lads fished this place , think its a syndicate water..... Very Happy Very Happy

Yes its a syndicate water and there are only ten members †its only open for pike fishing October to March and only three

fishman are allowed on at any one time. This could be why and like you said its got a lot of trout to eat. In fact they get

more runs from trout than pike.

Its only £200 for a season my mate had his name down for three years. Neville was saying this may be his last year.

I think news of this fish was over on the pit a few weeks ago now . It's a monster isn't it , could definitely do the record in a few weeks time in my opinion, however it could sulk in the depths for the next couple of months and come out again next season as long as it stays healthy . I haven't seen a picture of this fish recently , but it's always looked in good condition and great markings, just an exceptionally fat belly . 😀

The fish is an absolute stunner and i would love to catch her, and she has obviously been well handled and cared for. But I hope the next record is an unknown fish from a wild and wind swept water. Something that will inspire the average angler to still dream of catching a monster Very Happy

November start till March but if they start spawning early the fishing will stop

is that the management that stop the fishing, or the pike lads that have made that good move to protect the fish. Very Happy

Just a mutual common sense outlook amongst those involved,
