With all the rain we had yesterday and last night, the river is well in flood. So I have gone on the lake this afternoon and evening.
I am going to try a few spots around the lake today. I have one rod set up for ledgering and the other rod on a float and we will see what we pick up. Other than me, I have never seen anyone Pike fishing on here. I have had a 17lb + Pike some years ago and there is a good head of silver fish, so there is Pike in here with a good chance of a large one.
My first Pike was a 10 lb one on the ledger rod with a sardine on.
My second Pike was about half this size, this did go to prove that the Pike are breeding and there is a good chance of a big fat Pike out there somewhere.
This time, I recast further down the margin shelf, in the hope that the big fish may just be sitting there.
With the light going, it was time to start packing away. I tend to stay 30/45 minutes after dark (just in case).
Dispite the sizes of the Pike, I was very happy as this had proved there were breeding fish with the probability of a large fish
Until next time
