hi guys Does anybody fish on a regular basis on live bait but then change to dead baits and found that the quality and size of the pike have improved .Having fished on lives till about 1990 gone on to deads purely because of the hassle i.e rules and regulations.... what do you think......

i livebait a lot and think its a bit like lure fishing you do pick up more jacks the big girls cant often be botherd to chase but will take a deadbait it helps using big lives but not always last year i had a 6lb pike take a 1lb live perch affraid

i do sometimes still livebait with roach/perch on where permitted but to avoid the smaller fish i have a "special" method..... it weighs around 1 1/2lb and looks like a smaller version of what we target..... might not be to everyones taste and tbh i'm expecting some flack for this one but believe me it works Twisted Evil Twisted Evil
