Nice one tanglefoot,

Also, when the mackerel are about, take a light rod and as light a set of tackle as you dare. Mackerel, given a sporting chance, are a fantastic fish to catch.

when im fishing for winter pike on still water with deadbaits i find 80% of my catch is with lamprey .the last pic in the other thread was with this bait. only thing is it costs alot more then herrings n mackeral (cant spell) most fishing shops sell pks of 5 pieces for around £5 but if u have a famly run fishmongers go there n get them 2 order u a box . half stone or a stone .then frezz them in bads of 10. my frezzer has 1 stone lamprey,1 stone mackerel,1 stone herring, then mix bags of roach,rudd,spratts,trout .i used to be a fishmonger yrs ago and still great friends with my old boss so get fish cheap ;):unsure: hes the pike i had with the lamprey :badass:

hi B A here ive had a great time on commercials ect

using an in line method feeder, (free running)

3ib tc reccomended for starters (rod test curve)

a normal 12ft carp rod will perform poor

dynamite baits method mix

any decent hallibut or trout pellets if allowed

hair rigged, i use 2 14mm

mix hemp seed and diff size pellets

into the method mix not too much

it will break apart when casting in

mainly carp & tench on this method

the dynamite range is tip top for bait

tails up BOMBED AGAIN

Heres a bob-on tip to catch when nothing else seems to work when deadbaiting for pike...

Make a spliff ;)

As soon as you have the mix laid out in the papers, just about to roll, you'll get a run. Guaranteed :yinyang:

Never ever fails.

When fishing with maggots get some strawberry flavoured nesquit milkshake powder and sprinkle it over them. The fish will go beserk for them.

More of a heads up really than a tip :guitar:

Right i dont fully understand this but you carpers will I'm sure.I read it in the Angling times written by Keith Arthur who knows his Onions

"I have seen many times,in many angling publications,some specialist rigs,that incorporate lead wire on the hooklink to"nail it down".

Can i just nail one thing down..This practice is illegal!

Lead wire is allowed only where it is an intrinsic part of an item,wrapped around a hook,as part of the base of a float or wrapped around a feeder.

If you are found by a EA bailiff using it on the line,you run the risk of prosecution"

I know it can be overlooked so like I say just a heads up :guitar:

owd

this is to make sure your hooklink lie tight to the bottom so the fish dosent feel it with its lips ive done it myself but i use tungsten putty instead of lead wire theres stuff called kryston drop em which is purposely designed for the job you just run it up and down ya link its like a piece of dogbar it then coats the hooklink and makes it sink tight to the bottom (in theory of course ) coz ya always gonna get debris holding it off bottom

No mate you can still use lead but not small shots.Its very difficult to get hold of proper lead shot so thats why we dont use em but in the big sizes you can still use em if youve got em :guitar:

Plus its nearly all lead on the feeders still :guitar:

May have mentioned this already......

But

You can some fine fighting fishing for Pike by using a fly rod, about a No.10 I reckon is best - a true Lake caster, no chalkstream wand - a matching dry fly-line, trace and Salmon lure.

I've done the Yorlkshire Ouse that way a time or two. :guitar: Helluva take from a pike, they seem to really get annoyed by a decent Salmon lure, and you need maximum concentration to stop them taking the rod clean out of yer mits if they are carrying some beef on 'em. And big river pike do carry some serious muscle when they get on in years!

Mind yer hands though, when removing the hooks. Pike have nasty shark like gobs - I know!

Ps

Always remove barbs from the trebles first. Dunno why they still forge them that way FFS.
