On the Hampshire Avon Today, with my friend Ian after the pike. We are going to be roving around but will be using the Deeper Pro Plus to locate bait fish in any likely spots.
The first area yielded no pike, so we headed of down stream to another area we thought would be good.
We did find a very favourable spot which contained a lots of fish and a couple of very big readings. The yellow areas are fish as I have turned off the fish icon to be able to learn and understand the sonar.
We ended up staying there as every time I ran the Deeper over the area, the fish were still there! Around 1300, Ian’s rod was off and into a very nice pike but as luck would have it, the pike ejected the hooks. To say he was not happy a happy camper was an understatement – that’s just the way it rolls sometimes. We did prove that there was a pike in the swim and I am sure if it was not for the Deeper we would have moved on, which would have been silly as clearly there was bait fish and pike in that area.
Unfortunately no videoing today as the wind was too strong and in our faces.
Until next time
