    Ive never been pike fishing, though I have caught 2 in my lifetime. First one was quite funny me & a mate were float fishing & he had snapped off so I kept trying to cast over the line to get his float back, as I was reeling in I felt the line tighten & was into a fish, I thought I had foul hooked. Got it to the bank & it was about a 1lb jack pike with the hook firmly in its mouth. My hook must of been spinning on the retrieve & had caught the light & he went for it.. I love autumn/winter fishing its my favorite time of year. Plus its less busy so I can take the chance to prebait areas without people fishing my spots. I caught my pb common at 17.6 last winter doing this.

    Alarm upgrade & an over wrap for my bivvy is next on the list. Last winter was annoying due to condensation build up every morning. I upgraded alot of my winter kit this summer while the prices are low, so I should be more comfortable, fingers crossed.

    I remember when I started last year, I was looking at different rigs, set ups & essential items I needed. For about 3 months it felt like Christmas with all the parcels arriving lol. I do get most of my small bits like hooks, putty, swivels etc from my local tackleshop. It helps them & they will order me stuff in which saves paying P&P. I look forward to chatting to you in the future & good luck on your next trip

    Who fishes with 2 rods ?

    The cats ? They are a rare sight over this way The Catfish are a pain on light lines as they swim straight for the holes in the island. Mind you I could wade out & have a go at Noodling if I get snagged up

    Who fishes with 2 rods ?

    Ive been using 2 rods so far this year, but come end of September when there's less people on the lake ill be back to using 4. 2 on spots, 1 in the marges & 1 ready to chuck at showing fish. The chuck anyway rod will be a more heavier set up this year incase the showing fish is a cat.

    Ready made rigs.

    You can buy maver Jurassic hooklink on ebay for 3:99 or 3 for a tenner. 20m spools & steam straight easy enough too. Thats what I use to practice with.

    Ready made rigs.

    You can buy some cheap hooklink materials on ebay to practice with. Then when your happy use your decent stuff, thats what I do. Ive learnt a fair few rigs over the past year & the one I get results on is a standard uncoated hair rig for bottom baits & the multi rig for pop ups. Its also a confidence thing too, ive started to make the ronnie rig & it doesn't sit well with me yet (maybe hook choice is wrong) but if I casted it out now id be constantly thinking about it instead of keeping my mind on fishing & whats going on around me.
