End of year pike

29 12 2011

Thought i would end 2011 with a trip to ponsticill reservoir to give the pike another go. The weather was terrible with rain and strong winds but that wasnt going to stop me from wetting the line. four of us fished the lake today with only two of us lucky enough to land three of the pike caught today. We were all fishing static baits with a nice and easy setup just using a wire trace with 2 double hooks and a small bomb weight it was that simple all we wanted to do is duck for cover out of the wind and the rain. This was Kevin’s third attempt to fish for pike and he was busting to catch 1 after losing 1 on his previous trip. After fishing for about an hour and half someone’s drag on their reel started to click to kev’s surprise it was his and he went on to land a nice pike his first well done mate. A bit later on in the day i was into the second fish of the day not a bad size too i also went on to catch the third fish. Not a bad day’s fishing to end 2011 here are some pics from today.

Here’s kev with his first pike

I would like to wish u happy new year and look forward to 2012 for more fishy stories and pictures
