well.... i lost an absolute pearler of a pike yesterday.... at about 12.30 i moved to another swim... i dropped my ledgered sardine next to a sunken tree and continued to drift a sprat around the lake to no avail so reel it in and reset the stop knot to alittle deeper dropped a lead on and went around the other side of the tree in a little swin of about 20ft between an over hanging bush and the sunken tree, after relocating the sardine in to open water, and replaced it on the alarm and left that to its own devices.... i cast out my sprat maybe a a rod and half length out.. within half an hour it bob once then shot off to the right, so i lifted the rod wound down a little and hit it.... i have never felt a pike like it and the bend in the rod was like no other i had caught, now the adreniline (sp) was pumping, the fish was taking line from a tight clutch, becuase of the tree and bush i didn't want it to slack, unfortunatly she was the stronger and took me straight under the tree, and the hooks pulled luckily i got everything back except for the trace which looked like a corkscrew, all this happened with in 3mins or so but seemed like a life time.... unlucky for me i blew my chance for the day as i had to pack in half an hour so quickly changed the trace and sent out another sprat to the exact same spot for the last 30mins.....

Then today!!!

took this little beaut from the same place on a float fished sprat next to a sunken tree about a rod length out unsure of the weight didn't have my scales also sorry for the quality as it was on my phone would have done a self take with camera otherwise...

what weight would you give it?

Had a walk round today and couldnt believe it when i saw someone lure fishing and they didnt even have a landing net or mat. the care of fish is is of the upmost importance otherwise they wont be there in the future!

Nets when piking can be very messy tho mate.... when they do the roll the lures can get tangled up which destresses the fish and can be quite dangerous... when using lure and i say that lightly coz i don't do alot, i will chin it and unhook it in the water.... unless i cant see the hooks then a net and mat is compulsary

I prefer chining them myself but a landin net an mat are essential for certain situations like flyin hooks
