Here are some of the 80 some pike I got this year. I also got a new total weight PB at 26.4 lbs and 43" long.
I got a 44 1/2 " fish out of Canada 2 years ago but it was a skinnier fish and only 24 lbs. Here are 4 of my bigger fish.

Although it is legal to fish dead baits here, it is looked down upon as a un-skilled and un-sportsman way to catch pike by most serious Pike fishermen.  Some guys do use dead baits. The ones I call meat fishermen, they keep and kill every fish they catch.  I don't fish dead bait because too easy to injure a fish that way and I can out fish the guys using dead baits 90% of the time with lures. I believe our Pike are a treasure to be cherished, but many of the fisherman here think of them as trash fish to use for fertilizer in their garden unfortunately. A lot of the Bass fishermen don't like them because they bite their lures off.
I go out of my way to release every Pike that comes in my boat unharmed and that goes for anyone fishing in my boat as well.

hi rick
we too value our pike , everyone on this forum puts the pikes welfare first and foremost , but I would say most of the lads on here fish with deadbait and lures , to be honest rick I have caught all my biggest fish on dead baiting tactics , either from the bank and boat
, and lures seem to catch the smaller fish , in my case anyway... think my biggest on a lure was about 18lb , but its a case of you can only catch what is in front of you on the day, but I do enjoy lure fishing and keeping mobile , that method will keep you catching fish, and we have our own meat fishermen over here as well , who poach our treasured pike , but most of these are not British and don't respect our rules.

I know that dead baiting works and does catch some huge fish. I just won't do it as the risk of hooking the fish deep and killing it is higher than with lures. I think it makes a big difference in how to fish a deadbait and how soon you set the hook. Most deadbaiters in the USA wait till the fish swallows the bait before they set the hook as they plan to kill it anyway. So the lure fishermen get a little testy with them as they hate to see trophy fish killed.

lol! lol! lol! A little bit out of my area I think mate but thanks for the offer Wink Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

As for dead baiting and deep hooking we try our utmost to make sure we don't get any deep hook-ups and the best way is to strike as soon as there's any sign of a take Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Might miss a few but much better than a pike dying due to a deep hook-up

Well if you could make it here, I have a place you could stay and all the gear needed. All you would need is a little cash for food, gas and a non res. license.
