I am out today on the Hampshire Avon and it’s a perfect winters morning. Hopefully, I may just bag a pike or two. The river is well high and it’s making things a bit difficult, but there is always a way around it.
I’m planning on giving it about 45 minutes in each spot today. We shall see where we go from there.
Both rods are baited with mackerel at the moment, I may change one over to herring later.
My second spot of the day. There is a lot more slack water here, so you never know. I have seen another angler parked up and headed down river. Not sure what he’s after, as I could only just see him cross the fields. I may head down that way later on.
After a few more spots, I ended up in my final one and still hoping for a bite. The wind has freshened up some what and it was pretty cold (unless you could find a nice sheltered area).
A spot just like this!
I’ve had pike from here before, can’t wait to get my Deeper pro on the river. I have so little time on my day trips, it will reduce the amount of time I spend in a area. This will enable me to move on to other spots looking for the pike.
That was a surprise, I was hoping for at least one Jack or something. Oh well.
Until Next Time
