I had a small Common on whip whilst I was looking for small roach around the margins.

 

The rod was being used whilst The Tangler was teaching me to use a method feeder.

A couple of months ago, a Carp angler fishing on Darenth tree lake hooked a big pike on a boilie, it must have been spawning, because as his mate landed it, it's mate followed it into the net. Two pike on one boilie, wierd huh..!

A brace of 4lb tench on livebaits when after perch! And no, these weren't the small minnow-sized baits most anglers use for perch! These were 4inchers, which for me count as smallish baits. The problem with small livebaits for perch is that they catch too many perch of a pound or so. Fine if you want a big bag, but not if you're targetting the big old girls.

 

Years ago I was surprised when deadbaits started catching me tench and carp, but not any more! Carp in particular can be a flaming pest on deadbaits, and I've had more than 100 over the years. This is another reason why I use large baits when after specimen perch.

 

If you want to avoid the perch but catch carp on a heavily fished water give whitebait a try. These are the fry of sprats and herrings, and perch rarely take these seabaits which are typically about 2½ to 3 inches long. But carp love 'em!

Whilst winding in a hair-rigged lump of cheese one day, I hooked onto a fair size pike (about 10lb or so). I managed to bring it to within 6 inches of my net before it sliced through the line (7lb mainline, 5lb high-tech hooklength).

 

As for jacks, a mate of mine caught a jack measuring just 3 inches on a single maggot on a size 20.... He didn't even know he'd caught anything until he reeled in!
