There's been a few mentions of Pike spawning on the forum and it got me thinking.
How do you know when Pike have spawned on a particular venue?

you dont cos its differant times for each lake/loch generaly the further south you are the sooner they spawn and the highlands and clacial lochs spawn last but there hungry once spawned and rested i do think pike fishing regardless of other closed seasons should have its own to protect the fish

Very Happy Totaly agree, Very Happy One of the resavoirs i fish, Piking is now closed till september, Seems a long time to be closed for pikers, Other fishing is allowed, But i think it saves a lot of stress that is put on the Pike, Very Happy

Shocked Meant to say also that out of the three rivers that are local to me, Nothing seems to be spawning in the other two, Very strange, Very Happy As you would think if one started the others would follow, Razz

Very Happy Very Happy No hills or factory's for these rivers, As they are drains from a marsh land, But the only difference is the three rivers have a different bottom, stony, clay, & sand, But the water they drain is from different areas, But not many miles seperate them, Shocked

I had a few hrs Lure fishing on Sunday. There were fish thrashing around in the shallows drunken I love you I love you probably Pike.... A bloke was deadbaiting nearby & reckoned he had caught 3 doubles to 15lb! Shocked but he's somebody I have come across a few times & I think he has a bit of a good imagination.. Smile
Of course, all I caught was the undergrowth & tree's.. lol!

The key factor is water temperature, the pike start spawning whe water reaches 45 F. Here in Finland between the souther cost of the Baltic, and the tundra regions in Lapland, deep into the Artic Polar Circle, there is a difference of two months in the spawning time.

I can well believe it.... I went Nordik Skiiing near Lillehammer in Norway a few years back, people were driving their 4x4's on the frozen lakes there & skiing in March! Shocked I guess Finland is even colder.

Indeed in southern Spain they do it by midfebruary, not very usual to see pike spawning in Andalucía or Extremadura after the first week of march, even in the north, I come from Vasque Country, where the weather is almost the same as in the south of England, they usually finish the spawning by the second week of march, depending ofcourse how were the winter temperatures and rains.
