The morning after a frost, out of a nice shallow bay at the top of the lake out of the wind. I couldn't get a single bite anywhere else in the lake so moved into the quiets. This one popped up within minutes of doing so.
My first ever pike was was landed today fishing on a dead roach as bait hooked using a short trace with only 8lb line, I was absolutely stunned when I landed it and weighed it with my fishing partner david broome
This was 10 year Austens first Pike and he was very pleased with his catch.I have been coaching Austen for a few weeks and he already has had Carp to 11lb but today 25/10/15 he wanted to try for Pike and was rewarded with this beauty
