With the weather looking settled for a good week or two, this year I will be able to track down a nice PB Pike (hopefully).
This is my second trip out and I have moved to another area of the river. I am planning on doing this a bit, until I find the perfect area. I may well start to do a bit of prebaiting.
At the moment I am using deadbaits, mackerel on one rod with Sardines on the other. I am also injecting them with SpottedFin Salmon oil to boost the attraction levels o.
As my time is limited to 4 hours, I don’t plan on moving around unless I see any real signs of Pike movement. I will just concentrate on one area at a time and hopefully track down a nice new PB for myself this year. I am not forgetting about the Carp (like I did last year), I intend to do a couple of trips each week for them as well, until the lakes freeze over, which I think is a real possibility this year.
I had a move of swim for the last hour, with a bait in front of the reed’s, I was feeling very confident.
It was certainly a pleasant few hours out, unfortunately no joy, this time.
Until next time
