just a quick note to let you know where I have been and the blog has been really very quiet. Sorry about this I have either been doing DIY on my new house or working. But Now I have been back on the bank again and I am having some success.
I have been hitting the pike in “The Mets” lake part of the Thorney Weir syndicate complex. And apart from not having any large fish I have not been doing too badly numbers wise with not a blank in sight so far. Indeed on a recent session I managed to get 2 in the net at the same time.
I should explain that the 1st fish was legitimately hooked and as I was landing it the 2nd appeared from no where and swam in..Was about to say that I hadn’t had that happen before but I did with carp once in the Netherlands but that is another story. I suspect that they were spawning and the 2nd fish was hoping to mate with the 1st.
Also I have been trying out monster lures in an attempt to catch a larger stamp of fish, sadly this has not been working and so far my monsters are untouched by pike. Their day will come !
Back to the present I leave you with a pic of the most successful lure ( for me ) of almost all time with 90% of my fish this year and last coming to it.
Have you been out fishing for pike ? or other predators ? if you have drop me a line and post a comment to let us all know how you have been getting on.
