With the temperatures dropping and we’ve had a couple of frosts, it’s time to squeeze in the odd pike trip.
The sun is trying its hardest to break through the morning mist.
I’ve flicked a couple of free lined dead baits out, injected with Spotted Fin salmon Oil, for some added attraction. I have gone for this area as, the other week, my friend and I where watching the a shoal of bream being hit by pike. Let’s hope they are still about today.
One rod was left out in a likely area for the whole time. The other rod was cast out and reeled in a few feet every so often, I find this method can pay off sometime.
Just after noon time a Jack must of had a go at the bait (by the size of the bite marks on the dead bait). It managed to avoid the trees which is never a bad thing when Jack pike are concerned. I think I have managed to cut myself on them over the year’s, more than larger pike.
The sun has finally made it out. That took a bit longer than I thought it would today.
Just as I was about to reel in, the same rod was off and it turned out to be another Jack, probably the same one that dropped the bait, earlier on in the day.
Until next time
