End of the pike season

March 3rd, 2011 Comments off

well it is the 3rd of March and that means for most of us that the pike season ended 3 days ago. Sad really that we have abandoned closed seasons on most waters in the UK ( though not in Norfolk)  but we still cling to this antiquated idea that October – March is the pike season.I think some lobbying of my local water owners may be needed.

Anyway it is time to unload the lure kit out of the car and any quick sessions will now require a whole load more planning to sure that bait is fresh before setting out. One of the huge advantages of pike fishing is that you can just “grab and go” as lures are always ready.

Now on with the carp campaign 2011, hopefully it will be better than the carp campaign 2010 as the UK has not been kind to me yet fishing wise.

Well a few jacks later from Doogra lake and I was hooked again ! the rest as they say is history.
