  1. tried it a few times...wont use singles for pike..not unless they are fry feeding and im using very small baits. the dead/live baits i use just cant be rigged properly without trebles, also with singles i have missed many a take....its odd because with zander, i prefer singles. Mainly due to size of baits used, but also zander dont have the big mouth of a pike, trying to free two trebeles that arte firmly lodged can be difficult. there isnt much room to work in a zeds mouth, and i have unhooked zeds to over 12+. That and zeds can be much more finicky than pike. nope tried and tested trebles for me everytime, and i dont fish popular waters, so i dont have the problem of pike with snapped off traces in there guts.
  2. i have a Leeda Rimspin rod 9ft, i use it for lighter lure that my multiplier set up wont cast very well, small plugs and spinnerbiats etc i often use it as a bait rod, as long as im not fishing at distance it is fine, i normally float fish close in when using it, laned good fish over double figures on it.
  3. nice pics.. one of my collection
  4. hey fellas! cheers for the welcome bk! it has been a while, tho im getting back into my fishing for the winter, hooning around on bikes is a bit much in winter, teh bike is mianly for work for a while! got a new one now..same as before but not a 650...but a 1000!! went piking te weekend on a new water, started on lures...absolutelu nothing, tried all sorts, ended up plotting up with a FL dead out, and lure fishing round the bait...had a take and landed a near double..a nice lil welcome back, was a minter too! java script:bbc_pop()
  5. Its been a while since i posted on here, slowly getting back into fishing again after discovering fast bikes wrote my one off tho few weeks ago, dozy driver pulled out on me anyway in teh meantime i visted the Ebro..came away with a good fish(see pic)..hope everyones well...
  6. congrats on the PB for free roaming lives i alwasy use braid, anything else its braid for anything beyond say 50-60 yards, anything closer mono is a better cushion. never been snapped up on either...never.
  7. i'd try it on me scoot but not on my SV no way!
  8. they are present in the lea, but not in huge numbers, hence they can be difficult to find, i found out about some once, probably still there, but i had too many repeat captures so i moved on.
  9. i'm right into lures at the mo, top catchers for me are hawg wobbler-surface lure shad rap-floating and it has to be in firetiger manns 6inch shad spinnerbaits (small sizes) jointed-runt abu tormentor-floating 6inch deads wise,when winter comes portugese sardines are hard to beat, that or fresh large smelts.
  10. andy's spot on, fish the waggler,fish at mid depth(adjust as and when ie if they are going for it shallow up a bit), and feed alot of maggot with single maggot hookbait fish light but not too light. when you get a few decent sized chub feeding on maggots the crays will stay well away beleive me , fish to the far bank, trees or boats are the features to look for, trees that edge out over the water are best, as food will drop from these, in summer the chub can be all over the place or up in carthagena wier, best to give it a go fom sept onwards, thats not to say there arent any about at the mo. and dont forget theres tench,bream,good perch, big carp even the odd barbel to be had. best of luck how ya doing jigotai!?
  11. i'd say shes a good double,call her a mid double and be done with it,good observation led to a good capture!
  12. no way,jacks are bread and butter fish mate,good sport. cant catch twentys everyday....
  13. to me most piek under 10lb are jacks,tho the way things are going it will be lowered to 6-7lb soon!
  14. my thoughts are with his family and friends. Gerry was a lovely bloke,a real diamond,he was the first person to take me out lureing from a boat,he even came halfway across london to pick me up and show me his beloved thames,i had 2 trips with gerry that i shall remeber for a long time to come. RIP Gerry.
  15. i watched it last night,i see a few places i know well. very enjoyable programme,charles come across a a good bloke and angler.
