pike still spawning or not?

Post by speedy on Mon May 03, 2010 6:27 am

ey up lads. had a wee tab along the canal on thursday and saw a few different lads after the pike both lots deadbaiting. it was about 5/6am towards skipton. had a quick gas with them and i put to them that the pike are spawning and they said due to the grand weather they had an early spawn and are safe to go after now?????
as we were talking one of them reeled in a jack that didnt fight much but once the net went into the water it went crackers.

is it accurate to say they have finished spawning and are safe to wet a line and not do them any harm?

in all fairness i'd probably leave it until the river season re opens just to make safe as we can never really be 110% sure

It all depends on the water but I would say that the Pike have already spawned on 90% of venues Wink
