I finished my season with a jack yesterday. I have had 30 trips out - caught 64 pike from 10 different venues, biggest only 15lb and blanked
7 times.
Considering the weather and a knee problem I can't complain. In some ways I am glad it's over as it has been hard work at times.
I will be out in the boat over the next two months chasing big trout, which will be my last boat season as I will be selling it in the summer.
Sorry to hear that you have not been well, Adie, hope you will be better for next season.

Yesterday was my last trip of the season actually targeting pike. It started off well with 2 runs and 2 fish , long lean jacks of around 8 pounds each. But that was it .
I scraped the ice off the car that morning, then sat fishing in beautiful sunshine, more akin to carp fishing before hailstone and then rain made me pack up. I wasn't feeling it .
I don't know what's going on with this weather 😀
So my next trips will be by design and I will be targeting the midlands canals. There's a double figure Zander waiting for me somewhere, I'm sure of it. . . . . Last year when I targeted them though , 6 trips , 6 pike in a row and no Zander was enough to make me put my rods away. ( one of the pike was 22 anall 😉)
Anyway Zander here I come.
Good luck you lot !

Haha! I honestly thought that it looked like a larger fish, but the size of the person holding it makes all the difference. I'm 6ft 8", and I could land a British record pike and people would be questioning whether it was over 30lb, let alone 40lb Crying or Very sad

I'm a long way off that mate! We'll be about an hour from Chew Valley, so I'll have to get a few sessions there later this year. I've had hundreds and hundreds of pike, but never a twenty. I'd love to skip that entirely and get a thirty Laughing

Not pike, but we had a great day at Drayton Reservoir on Saturday catching carp off the top. It was our (I went with my friend Ross) first time there, and with a bit of homework, I put us on what we were later informed was 2 of the best three pegs on the lake. It took us a while to get into the swing of it, but we got a system going where one of us spodded pellets in whilst the other fished. As soon as a fish was caught, we swapped over.

We ended up totally knackered by the end of the day. 13 hours fishing, 43 fish caught (of which 42 were double figure) up to 19lb 7oz. We spodded about 25kg of pellets in (probably about half that weight dry, as I've found the carp take more confidently with presoaked pellets) and the next day everything ached.

On account of getting the best pegs and putting so much bait in, we are pretty sure we caught more than anyone else that day on the lake, which is probably an unrepeatable performance. We owe much to the kind chap to our right who had the third of the three best pegs, as we all shared feeding one large swim, and it's by emulating his set up (huge spod, huge controller float) that we caught so well. We were advised before going to spod over zigs, but that didn't appeal and speaking to other anglers, didn't catch well on the day.

Here is my 19lb 7oz:



The next day, I couldn't fish on account of family commitments, but I took Ross to Stanwick lakes fishery the other side of Northampton. A searing hot, sunny day with lots of shy biting carp cruising the surface. Ross managed to winkle just one fish off the surface at 20lb 3oz (the shitbag) beating my pb by 12oz Evil or Very Mad
