Bits and bobs First Pike


Recommended Posts

Hi, So I got my own Tackle Box and Cantilever design 2 tray I have been using my brothers up until now and, some of my friends gave me some stuff, I went fishing today and caught my first Pike ayayayayayay, my brother had one on but it got off, guess how much the pike weighs (I didn't have scales with me)

You looked very well preserved for a 50 year old!when i caught my first pike the term "care" was unheard of!

The summer/pike thing is a massive generalization, while I wouldn't go fishing for pike in warm, stagnant ponds in the summer I've never had any issues with fishing for them on the rivers with the app

I don't know what it is about pike and pike anglers, I'm starting to think that the PAC should evolve into a new body with the sole aim of banning all pike fishing and all other types of fishing that

It looks a little dry in that second picture. Please tell us it was returned safely..

Yeah it was handeled carefully and returned safely as with every other fish I catch, was kept out of water a bit longer than I would of liked but it was my first pike and I was so excited, we were a bit unprepared, I was shaking haha.

Believe NOTHING anyones says or writes unless you witness it yourself and even then your eyes can deceive you

None of this "the enemy of my enemy is my friend" crap it just means i have at least two enemies!

 

There is only one opinion i listen to ,its mine and its ALWAYS right even when its wrong

Seeing as nobody else will have a go, I'll guess about 4lb 6oz Dan. Much bigger than my first pike, many, many years ago, when I was about your age, (and that's wasn't 50 chesters).

Angling is more than just catching fish, if it wasn't it would just be called 'catching'......... John

I think John has the weight about right....and a perfect size for eating!

Eating wild caught fish is good for my health, reduces food miles and keeps me fit trying to catch them........it's my choice to do it, not yours to stop me!
