Trip No 30 Pike Fishing (2016)


I am having one last go after the big Pike which in this lake and then, that will be it until next Winter.

Both rod’s are on  deadbaits and with a bit of Predator Plus over the top.

I have found a use for loom bands (other than making a mess with bands all over the house), thanks to my children’s obsession!

You can tie on your dead baits when casting out at range and with the help of  a Solu-Ties  the presentation is spot on.

One bait is under this tree

And the other is across the small bay just off the tree line.

A friendly Robin popped in to say hello.

Unfortunately, another blank Pike trip.  This brings the end to my Winter campaign, with my first fish being a 21 from the river.

It’s been hard going since then, with over 17 more Pike, they have all been low doubles or under.  It’s been reasonably productive, however no more big Pike.

Until next Winter.

Regards Richard

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
