I had a good year Pikin and got a new PB

Post  Fish-N-Fool on Mon Nov 26, 2018 4:35 am

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.





Check out my video on my PB also

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.
