Trip No 21 Pike Fishing (2016)

As it’s half term at the end of the week,  no day fishing for me.  I have taken the decision to concentrate on Pike this week (and the next two trips out), as it could be too late by the time I get back on here.  I only have a couple of weeks left for Carp fishing as the syndicate follows the old close season on this particular lake.


I have opted for my first trip, to fish the known area of spawning and if no joy there, move onto the main lake again for my last two trips.

What Pike could resist this bright red flavoured Herring.

My plan is to cover this area within my 5 hrs of fishing, so I can ascertain if the Pike are in this area at the moment.





With gaps, bays, snags, there are plenty of options for the Pike to be hold up in.


Moved swim and within minutes had a Jack.


Just need it’s Mother!

Just one Pike was it for the day.

Until next time

About richardhandel

I would like to give a brief snap shot of my life and introduce myself; My name is Richard Handel and was born in 1965 in Suffolk. I have worked as a UK Operation & Intermodule Manager for a shipping company. I live in Hampshire now and am married with 2 young children, both girls so I am a bit outnumbered even the cat is a girl! I have been fishing since I was about 7 years old. I started on small local rivers in Suffolk, then moved onto gravel pits and then carp fishing. My personal best is a 39.08 mirror, over recent years I have started river fishing again, on the Hampshire Avon, this is a nice break from the carp lakes. My life has turned a big corner this year, the company I was working for relocated their Operation centre to Estonia. I was offered a job at the head office in London. This would have meant a 5 day commute and working in Stratford. As a family, we did not fancy this, as I would hardly spend any time with the children (and the Mrs). So after 22.5 years, I was given a nice redundancy package and with my wife is working full time. I became the house husband. This has meant a complete turn around in my fishing, as I can pick and choose when I go. I have found a splendid new syndicate to fish this year, which includes 5 lakes and some 8 miles of river with only 150 members. It's an amazing change to the way I am able to fish. I am now trying to start my own tackle business and make a bit of a name for myself in the world of fishing, as I have retired from real work. Richard
