13. Use paper clips as a weak link for connecting your leads.

14. If you haven't got the weight indicated on your leads, try using different coloured paper clips on a specific weight of lead, e.g: Red = 2.5oz blue = 3oz green = 3.5oz etc

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 freeling close range delicate bobbin set up deadly affraid

Not sure on that one stubbo?

I'm against free linning bait for Pike. Evil or Very Mad
I suppose if its close enough in and your sitting right on the rod, watching every movement of your line it could work but you couldn't afford to loose your concentration for one second or you'l have a deep hooked Pike ! affraid

Know what you mean. Large baits don't always catch the large fish.
Anyone see the article in this weeks Angling Times where Mick Brown fished a small section of Pollan on a single hook and caught a 24lb 10oz Pike! affraid

The section must have only been about 2" across.
Amazing. Cool

bazz told me it's a good idea to have some velcro straps handy...
Hints & Tips on Pike Fishing - Page 3 Dscf1010

He also told me that they are good as rod straps for a quiver holdall so that the rods dont fall apart when unpacking or packin them away
Hints & Tips on Pike Fishing - Page 3 Dscf1011

I have use coloured ones as that if i ever done night fishing or when its dark i dont have the risk of loosing them..or that you know which rod is needed quickly

UPDATED: 17/02/10

1. Use any left over bait from your fishing trips to make chum. Chop up and freeze for next time then mix with groundbait.

2. Blast frozen Sardines are cheaper at supermarkets like Sainsburys (£2 for a bag) Found in the freezer section.

3. When reeling in your deadbait to recast; don't do this quickly. Sink and draw on the retrieve. You might get a take!

4. Some baits can be refrozen and used time and time again. e.g. lamprey.

5. To enhance your bait; pour 'Predator Plus' onto the bait and pop it in freezer; the additive will then be drawn into the bait.

6. When deadbaiting for pike ALWAYS try and keep resistance to an absolute minimum; e.g. open bail arms & light clips.

7.Try pushing a alka seltzer tablet down the throat of your deadbait before casting, to create a visual attraction.

8. Short sessions can be just as productive; so have some tackle at the ready for spur of the moment trips.

9. Always make up your landing net before your 1st cast; Just in case you get an immediate run.

10. Try 'fox casting clips' when casting heavy bait. They take the weight off your hooks and allow bait to be softly hooked.

11. When popping up a dead bait keep the length of line on the bomb link longer than the trace to prevent tangles.

12. Don’t forget to stab a few small holes in a lamprey to get those juices flowing!

13. Use paper clips as a weak link for connecting your leads.

14. If you haven't got the weight indicated on your leads, try using different coloured paper clips on a specific weight of lead, e.g: Red = 2.5oz blue = 3oz green = 3.5oz etc

15. Buy some cheap velcro straps to hold your rods together. Stops them banging about in your quiver or holdall

The coloured ones are a great idea Very Happy

Much easier to spot than my black ones... mine are reusable cable ties from Hobbycraft Store, about £3 for 10.

the chicks is a good one mate Wink

Get mine from local pet stores that sell snakes and reptiles. My mrs goes mad if she finds out i've been using them though... and i think they work best at the right time of year (i.e. spring) when there are actually chicks about on the water.
