I will give them a try some time. Even supermarkets are short of Sardine,Herring and Makerel.

Hard to beat (fresh) roach in my opinion. It's a remarkable robust hook bait, ideal for twitching/wobbling too.

I had a waggler out all yesterday and not a sniff of any live bait aside from that baby pike at the end of the night.

I might spend my summer collecting roach as i go float fishing over the warm weather. Try collect a decent amount for the winter.

Does anyone do this?

I catch all mine in September. Dip them in water, then on a dinner tray single depth in the top of freezer. When they are rock hard put them in 5 at a time in ziplock sandwich bags and straight back in the freezer. They don't stick together, the fins are intact and best of all last 12 months.

Hey thanks for that info. I tend to get a lot of Perch over the summer, are they any good for deadbait?

I like perch as lovebait but not had a lot of luck with them as deadbait come to think of it I've not had much luck with anything so for this season lol! lol!
Big perch also love smaller perch so they make good livebait for perch  Baits ☺☺

Outstanding fish, clearly full of spawn. Well done!

Just as a point aside, I would not be standing up fully with any fish (and certainly not a large pike like that) over a hard surface like the paving there. One hard thrash for the pike and it could kill it. Best to take photos with a large fish kneeling over an unhooking mat or soft grass. Just constructive criticism, as it could be the difference between a fish being returned intact or severely injured or worse.
