Trip 94 Pike Fishing 

As there was an absolute bucket load of rain falling down into the lake yesterday, there was no way I was going to be after the carp today.  So pike fishing was on the menu!  With the hope of spotting the odd carp, to give me a clue for tomorrow’s trip.

I had absolutely no idea where I was heading for but it had to be somewhere the bream would be.  As Mr Pike will never be too far away.  I opted for a swim that I had never tried for pike in.  In this swim I could cast my baits into a nice warm and calm area of the lake.  It had a nice gravel hump where I have caught bream in the winter from before.  I am going to sit it out in each swim and not move around (like I have done on here before), as I need to build up a better picture of were and when the pike are feeding.

As before, I left one rod static and flicked the other one around the area.  Unfortunately, no pike today.  Hopefully next time.

Until then

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
