hi dan, what expereance do you have pike fishing Question
if not much mate scratch then you need taking under the wing with someone who can teach you the correct way of handling unhooking and so on, anyone new to this great creature needs to be shown how pike fishing goes,

has for venues if you already know about piking then theres plenty of local ish waters and clubs to you.....

Hey man i haven't done much to be honest, I did a bit of spinning a couple of years back on the Calder caught a couple of jacks but I was with a guy who helped me unhook them and that as I was young and clueless lol! Still clueless to be honest but I've been reading a lot about pike handling and unhooking as if and when I catch one I want to make sure I take good care of it and don't cause it any harm! The things is the guy I went with has now moved away, but I still want to get in to it! :/

in my opinion mate, hands on is the best way of getting to know pike fishing, keep your eyes peeled on the forum, they will be one or two out piking, just ask the question if you could join in, and i,m sure that you will be welcomed to been shown how it should be done with out hurting yourself or the fish...... not quite sure if i,m out this weekend but your more than welcome to join me if i am, and its not many miles from where you live....

If you have not done a lot of pike fishing I 100% recommend you to go a few times with the lads for you and the fish. There top of the food chain but it does not take a lot to kill one and I can assure the teeth cut through flesh quite well.


That Nidge is a good bloke as well

i was talking to roger at 3 lakes and he said a bloke was washing his hands in the lake (with a ring on his finger) and a pike grabbed his hand! The wound caused a lot of flesh to be removed from his finger. ( i bet in a couple of days time, the story says a bloke had 2 fingers bitten off lol! I must admit though i get a little paranoid when my dogs are drinking lakeside at venues where i know there are pike in. affraid

Gaz I know of a very similar story where the bailiff was unblocking an over flow and the pike went for his watch and chewed his wrist up. As for the dog my one is always at the waters edge and he is perfect 20lb pike bait. Suspect
