Post  stubbo on Thu Feb 18, 2010 9:08 pm

no problems fishing through the summer

depends on the venue though

where are these proposals to ban summer fishing one would have to assume its another revision to the salmon and freshwater fisheries act and the usual consultation process applies

it ne of the reasons the close season still exists though, although why only on rivers and sssi's is a joke it should be as it was or not at all

most of this is down to sngling journalists thinking about how to fill column inches.

found the article somebody must have proposed the summer ban to p.a.c they say quote to be fair to all pike the pac does not seek to recommend a summer pike fishing close season which some poeple seem to think that it would like to see one , but is afraid to say so. i think pac are looking at the different types of waters individually and making a decisoin on there findings the depth and water quality should be looked at closely some water have bad algae blooms that depleat oxegen levels in summer . one water in wales where i have fished in the past suffers badly in summer with algae but still gets fished for pike with quite a few deaths Crying or Very sad

as if it would do any good. our weather aint as hot here which help us in a way. but a ban of any kind is a step in the wrong direction.
why, if it's true should the pac step in. waters all over the country have different aspects.

pike can live in wet mud it doesn't harm them i don't think. as i am not a fish or i could let you know what it is like . they reason i know they can live in wet mud is a know a fishery and it got drained and the owner thought all the pike were removed because the water was all gone . but the thing is the pike were all living in the wet mud . when he filled it back in people were still catching them and this is what he tells me .

someone i know used to catch tench and would occasionally transport them to his own pond carried in a damp keepnet in the back of his car.... i think as long as you keep their gills damp/wet they will survive for an extended period (i'm not making any guesses as to just how long though).
i know we were talking about pike but the principal is the same

To answer the original question, I dont see a problem with Summer pike fishing if the water in question can sustain suitable oxygen levels, like large glacial waters and reservoirs etc. Even at that, you can shorten the time you have a pike out of water by travelling well prepared for the worst, in order to get the fish back in the water ASAP.

I think it's the ill prepared angler or the bad angler who isn't prepared for unhooking fish properly or the types that must take 12 pictures from every possible angle, whilst mishandling the fish that are the threat.

It all sounds like yet another blanket ban affecting everyone because of the few....again!

cant see a problem with summer pike fishing, so long as you return the pike a.s.a.p. we allow it at cellars, but we are lucky, we have a constant water flow in, and dont suffer from weeds, or algee of any sort. all we ask if summer piking is to return the fish quickly, I have had 2 of my biggest catches in the summer 21lb plus, and a 24lb plus, both caught between may-september, my 24lb was the lake recod for a week Rolling Eyes and someone came and caught a 27lb plus. Exclamation Exclamation that lasted a month and 32lb plus became the record. that was caught in the october,
so summer piking has had some quailty pike banked.

bas.......................... Cool

Very Happy Very Happy Summer piking is as good as winter piking, I find newby Pikers dont understand that a pike can gas up and needs more care when returning, Also when a Pike is out of the water, You should have a wet towel with you, This is for covering the Pikes eyes, They cant blink, And on a very sunny day the eyes can be damaged by the sun light, I tend to take 1 picture in sumer just for my Blog, But again if the pike in my oppinion has been out of the water long enough, Or its to bright, Or it faught very well and feels gased up, I only unhook the Pike and return it strait away, After all the welfare of the Pike is more important than any Pictures, Very Happy Very Happy
