Interesting point, I've seen so many using live bait, I assumed it was permitted. I don't think its against the law so, Who would be in authority to say NO?

Maurice,

Pike are natural predators in british waters, they and the other species in a system, reach an equilibrium and survive alongside each other. The pike eat dead and, sick/dying fish, as well as healthy ones. Zander on the other hand are an introduced species. They gorge themselves then carry on killing fish for no reason. They are decimating native fish stocks wherever they have been introduced. The NRA have to carry out culls on zander because of the damage they do. So IMHO they should be eradicated, in a humane way.

Flonker,

I think livebaiting is allowed on the broads, as long as the livebait has been caught on the broads, not in a different river system, as this can introduce disease.

LIVEBAITING SHOULD BE BANNED.

Also, when deadbaiting with freshwater fish, they have to have been caught in the same system because of the danger of introducing disease.
This also Kills fish unnecessarily as Mackeral, sprats and herring, etc, make excellent baits and are freely available.

I agree with your sentiments entirely with regard to live baiting.
Dead baiting would seem to fall into a similar catagory.

Whoops, Sorry Breadflake, My fault for not making myself clear.
I have nothing against the eradication of Zander in this country, in fact I am in agreement that this should happen. It is the Zander Bins I oppose. I think the bins send the wrong message about fish care, also Zander are quite good to eat, so why bin them. (Pike can be good to eat as well, but I get all mine from a trout fishery)
Idealy the Zander should be removed professionally, not Angled for and binned.

Hi Maurice,

My sentiments exactly.

Inhumane killing of any animal should, imo, be banned.

I have never fished for Zander.If I did I know exactly where they'd end up. As for Pike, they are delicious. On one of H. F. Whittingstall's tv progs he jellied pike. Something I have yet to try, (along with Zander).

I agree with budgie man 100% about pike conservation and would like to add that as well as the correct tackle for landing a pike there are certain unhooking tools you need, I would never go after pike unless I had a decent pair of forceps, wire cutters with me, and I recommend inexperienced pikers carry a thick glove.
On a few occasions I’ve ended up with a pike in the landing net a hook in its mouth and a hook tangled in the net, the only safe way to deal with this situation is to cut the wire trace to get it away from the net, put it on a unhooking mat and using a forceps remove the hook.
I think the EA should do check to see if pike anglers have the right gear, and if they don’t moved on or something

Now gang, I don't want to open a can of worms here, but to agree to ban livebaiting will play straight into the anti's hands. It is still a legal method, and although I don't do it very often it at times can be the only bait a pike will look at. Where do we draw the line? Maggots, worms, crabs, all live bait I think you will agree, it is a very imotive subject and a very complex one, not just a matter of not using freshwater fish as bait. As for the Zander, it saddens me to read some of the comments, if any of you can remember back far enough Pike were the hated species, they were thrown up the bank at every opportunity, they are now reveered by many, asto are the Zander, they do not eat orkill every thing in site, they do hunt in packs but do not kill for the sake of it, this would be very couter productive on their part. On the fens in particular they are very sort after for their sporting qualities and are looked after accordingly. Nature has a way of finding a balance in these matters. Carp are not a native species but are the most popular fish in the UK. We should treat all species the same, what if the Zander boys started to bin all the bream they catch? There is a place for all in our rivers, cat fish next I don't wonder!!!
