Hey guys, is it safe pike fishing? I have only ever carp fished but the lads I go with reckon pike fishing is real dangerous, apparently too easy to lose a finger, always put me off!

check out the pike angling club of great britain bud...its all there how to unhook and handle them ...there very fragile more so than carp or whatever .best to go with some with experience tbh till yu get the jist off it !!!!

Nice fish fishhead :) i love pike fishing & cant wait to sample the fishing down here in england as everyone i speak to tells me theres big pike everywhere, whether i can catch them or not is another question :) my PB is a measly 10lb & ive put in many a mashed hours on the bank but i dont really mind cos i luv it even if i dont catch. Used to fish some local waters back home but they were shite, was like trying to get blood out of a stone trying to get a fish out them. Used to travel & fish Loch Lomond, Loch Tay, Loch Awe, all the big fish venues, id mostly blank but my m8 would always get a couple & he wasnt doing anything different to me, was always good times tho, cant beat fishing with a bag of green getting mashed all day with not a care in the world, ahhhhhhhhhhhh bliss :rofl: yip, need to get my fishing gear in order :rofl:

Healthy :rofl:

been fishing 30 years and never caught a Pike. Never fished anywhere that held any, except when fly fishing. I have recently found a drain with some in and i fancy giving it a try. Watch out Esox :ouch:

my pb pike at just shy of twenty one pounds caught on a makki tail ...

cast out, tightened up, attached bobbin,

bobbin was pulled from my fingers...... resulting in a screaming run !!!!

i recast a lot when piking i think the splash attracts them to your bait

peppi :spliff:

Great pic

I have to say that the pike looks well p*ssed off. Never seen such an unhappy looking fish

Great catch

Hi Peppi good to see your still dipping the old rod. lol

Ive got some great old Pike recipes if you want them. Some Polish ones as well.

I remember my mate caught a whopper pike killed it took it home and put said fish in his bath with running water to keep fresh. He went to get it and the cold running water brought the stunned fish back and it nearly took his finger off! :spliff:

Give me a shout if you want old Classic Pike Recipes though.
