Following on from the previous thread, nothing annoys me more than seeing people fish for pike without any knowledge of their quarry. No your swing tip rod will not do, neither will your 6lb breaking strain line, no you cant troll from behind your cruiser, and no you cant nod off and leave your live/deadbait in the water. These are just a few of the things we see every year from part time pikers, dont get me wrong we all have to start somewhere but pike have teeth, and this fact alone will frighten some people when it come to unhooking, this is not a difficult task if you have some knowledge of how to handle pike. They may look menaceing but beieve me pike will suffer more than any other freshwater fish from mishandling. And plese hace a keepnet big enough to accomadate your capture. Please dont keep pike in a keepnet, they WILL die, quickly take your photo's and return as quickly as possible. I could go on and on but you are probably bored by now, but hundreds of pike die each year due to mistreatment. Enjoy and return your  fishing but be equiped to deal with your catch. For those of you who are interested see address below of the Pike Anglers Club of Great Britain, here you will find out all you need to know. Don't forget to post the pic's of your catches for us all to see, Tight lines.http://www.pacgb.co.uk/tips/landing.html

Blimey I must leave that Guiness alone, Should read "please have a landing net big enough to accomadate your capture" also "enjoy your fishing but be equipped to deal with your catch" Hope that now makes more sense!

Pike fishing the right way. . . .

1) Open can of draught guinness, poor into glass allowing 119.5 seconds to settle and drink it whilst deciding which rod and reel combination to use and what breaking strain you think you may need.
2) Open second glass of draught guinness and drink it whilst tackling up.
3) Open third can of draft ginnis and drink it wilst deciding wot bait to use.
4) Open forth can of draft ginness and drink it whilst trying to remember wot you got your fishing tackle out four
5) Open fifth can of draft ginnis and drink it whilst packing away fishing kit
6) Head to the pub for the real thing.


great session, the one that got away was huge but the five you caught were all perfect!

Keith,

Must agree with you. Boatboys guide to fishing is certainly refreshing...

Great one Boatboy, I like it. Smile

On a serious note though, I must say that I agree wholehartedly with what Budgie Man says.  I'm also a keen pike angler, and for anyone that is thinking of giving pike fishing a go, the link he provides gives some very useful tips.

It's just sad to know that whilst there are many inexperienced anglers out there that genuinely want to learn how to deal with fish properly, there are equally as many that just don't care at all.  

I have very vivid memories of catching a small Jack pike at the age of about 10 and having two blokes yelling at me from the other bank telling me to "Knock it on the head!", "Kill it!", and "don't put it back in there!".  Luckilly my dad was just at the car and was straight over to help.  I wonder what would have happened if they had caught it though?

good thread, mr budgie man  Smile

nowadays,there is no excuse for not researching pike fishing before going. there are numerous books & videos on the subject, & the PAC should always be willing to help.

the best way tho, is to fish with someone who is experienced.

hi bosun mate
welcome to the site,best way is to come fishing with me, never catch any thing but seem to fall asleep a lot, put that down to relaxation or the stella.
but you are right ,for first timers it is best to have help on hand so the fish do not get damaged.
i do worry that fishing may follow the hunting path,and after watching some anglers on the broads a bit more care may be prudent.plus the attitude some of them have to the rest of the river users?
i have often thought that a fee should be payable for fishing then a bit more accountability may be started.
cos its allways the few that spoil it for the rest of us.
Cheers

Might not be much of a fee but we have to pay for our rod licences.
Unless of course you are proposing "feeing up" every part of the river...that would be about as welcome as telling boaters they have to pay the toll plus a milage charge for every inch they travel.
Most of the beer cans I see floating in the broads are "overboards" from boats, much of the rubbish I see floating is "overboard" from boats....if accountablity should be there for anglers then it should be there for boaters too.

hi marc mate no sweat
just a thought around most of norfolk you have to pay to fish i do as well.
my boat license is a lot more than my fishing one.
not many places in the u k where you can fish free.
plus i have to have insurance to be on the broads .
one of my most spot on haunts in norfolk costs me £10 a day to fish  so why not charge a little for the broads. Smile
cos i do note a lot of anglers hog the moorings and will not give way to craft. Question

roya

now about my bilges.
