your not having much luck Danny, the few places named are actually on the southern waters rather than the north!

There are one or two traditional pike fishing waters on that you may want to start with.

The river Thurne between Martham and Dungeon Coner plus Candle Dyke / White Slea between the Thurne and Hickling Broad.

Do be careful - some areas of the water up there have restricted access thru the winter for the protection of the wildlife.

There are one or two spots on the Ant as well, try the margins around the junction of the river to Stalham and the serval wide pools which are formed by the bends of the river.


Hopefully I have not been too specific to invoke the Fatwa of the Pike Mafia!

BoatBoy - No comment. Dannyb1 - Were you paying attention?

Clive, - Agree with your comments entirely, that is the only Photo I have ever taken of our Pike. Unhooking in the water is also my chosen method, but as you say only can be done in low freeboard situations, otherwise I use my mat, barbless hooks. spec net,in fact as a species the Pike have cost me a few pennies over the years.

Dannyb1 - if you really want to land a few Pike, then give Charlie Bettel a ring for a day trip out on the Yare, he provides everything including the boat, two of us did this a fair few years ago and I'm still using his unhooking methods, with practise it is far kinder to the fish. Incidentally my preferred bait is dead-bait - smelt, mackeral and lamphray always seem to do it for me. Lures and spinners have produced but only numerous Jacks, that is not to say it won't work for you as I'm sure it would for others.

Just to confuse the issue, sometimes we have caught in the most unlikley places that don't seem 'Pikey' at all. A tip is when ledgering / float fishing etc, put your pike rod out (Close to hand)with a large float and minimal depth to bait and just leave it to it's own devices. My 23Lb was caught at a depth of just 2ft down with the float literally bumping up against the reeds, Where? - It can be found in a popular book !!

As for the 'Secret Service' - you are most probably correct, they take lessons from Musiclive and JennyMorgan!

All the best in your endeavours, if you want further info from a 'semi-pro' on this site - ask 'BreamSlayer'  -  Griff

One of these decades we WILL finish Broad Ambition !!

Heres a pikey clip for all of the pike fisherman, think this one might have bitten off more than it could chew.

I never saw that clip mate, but I do know the Germans have become slightly controversial as far as fishing is concerned.

Years ago when I was a kid I lived in Germany because my Dad is in the army, he used to take me fishing most weekends to various german lakes near where we lived, then one day the Germans banned the use of keepnets and everything caught had to be killed.  Hence no more fishing in Germany, even now all the Army sport fishing is done in Holland where my now old man is still taking part!

dannyb1.  You mentioned your dads still takeing part in the fishing in Holland . Just bookrd up recently for my annual weeks breaming holiday in Holland Place called De-Koeberg up near Heerde towards the German border. Fishing the vast river Issell, Vetch, and various lakes.Some right bream  to be had there.In fact I was only thinking  about it a few hours ago, about how the dutch  detect there bites, they attach a small bell to the end eye of the rod, and when they get a bite the bell dings, when I first saw it I shook my head but I had to accept it works when the guy pulled out a 6,lb beauty.    Tight Lines,  Steve.

Hi all

Vicky my Dad was staioned in Bunde / (Hohne thats Bergen/Fallingbostel area not far from Hanover) Bielefeld and is now doing a final 3 year stint in Sennelager.  I was myself born in germany at BMH Munster, and the place you are taking about Rinteln is now nearly all but forgotten.  The only thing remaining is Prince Rupert School.  The camp is no longer used and the hospital closed. I know that the school is soon going to be relocated also.

Bream slayer, yep I know he goes to heerde and he does fish the issell.  He goes on 2 trips each year for a week each time and I think that the trips he does might be run from a angling shop round London somewhere.  I can find out the details if you are interested.

regards
danny
