Hints & Tips on Pike Fishing Empty Hints & Tips on Pike Fishing

Post  nightwatchman on Mon Dec 28, 2009 5:27 pm

Following on from a previous post I thought it might be quite useful to put any tips on Pike fishing in one thread.
The ones I've managed to collect up to now are:

1. Use paper clips as a weak link for connecting your leads
2. Use any left over bait from your fishing trips to make chum. Chop up and freeze for next time then mix with groundbait.
3. Blast frozen Sardines are cheaper at Sainsburys (£2 for a bag) Found in the freezer section.
4. When reeling in your deadbait to recast; don't do this quickly. Sink and draw on the retrieve. You might get a take!
5.
6.
7.
8.
9.
10.

Please feel free to add to the list if you have any more. Cool

Post  robh107 on Tue Dec 29, 2009 8:45 pm

ok here's my tip.......
when deadbaiting for pike ALWAYS try and keep resistance to an absolute minimum i.e. fish open bale arms and line clips set as light as you can possibly get away with.
some pike are very wary of any unusual resistance when feeding.

Try pushing a alka salsa tablet down the throat of your deadbait just before you cast it out It will fizz away for a few minutes and could make a pike take the bait more readily !
I've used this before with some success But not for some years now Very Happy

Be motivated.

Some of my best fish have come from very short sessions - an hour here or there at a local water can get you some excellent results if you know the fish are in there - the number of times i've nearly not bothered because time was short are too many to mention - but nearly always productive Cool

Always have a made up rod and landing net ready to go in the back of the car for those moments Wink
