Pike 

Steve and an 18 pounder in the last of the weak winter sunshine across Donkey Broad.

Over the years I have done a fair bit of Pike fishing around the country in various pits, drains, rivers and broads, and have occasionally I have been lucky enough to catch one or two nice ones. The gallery below shows a few of the fish caught by my friends and myself for your perusal- mostly from Broads, lakes & pits on this page.

A 30lb 10oz gravel pit cracker for Dickie!

Strange sunlight over the pit.

The end of another winter's day by the lake.

Where did you get that hat?

Dawn down t'pit.

Carl clipping up after casting out at dawn on Hinchinbrooke Lake near Huntingdon.

A gorgeous 25lb 8oz cracker taken from a lovely gin-clear gravel pit on swimfeedered mackerel head.

Sash & his long awaited 30 pounder at 32lb 3oz, which swam off with his deadbait on a day out at a local gravel pit. Nice one.

Carlos with a pretty poached double.

31lb 3oz Gravel pit pike taken on trout livebait. Carl had come to see me cos he was chuffed to have caught his first 30 that day from a different pit... then the buzzer sounded! What were the chances of that happening eh?

Dick Sears and a lovely 26 from a gravel pit.

A 19lb 10oz pit Pike that took a margin fished herring- best of a ten fish catch.

Potter Heigham chippy. I looked at the sign over the door, and had to wonder whether it really was batter down the bloke's apron... and whether someone hade deliberately sabotaged the lightbulbs! (Should say "amusements").

I managed to blag a day out in my dinghy on a large pit near my home... and just as I suspected it would be, the fishing was tremendous, with the best of the bunch being this 20lb 13oz beauty.

Thurne 22 pounder taken on trolled livebait after dark. A bit of a scabby looking thing really- as many of them seemed to be at the time; probably down to the amount of angling pressure...

22lb 10oz from the famous (or should that be infamous?) Donkey Broad. A brilliant day was that, even though Steve and myself had to clear the broad pretty sharpish 2 or 3 times before it was over!

A 17 taken from Wroxham Broad right at the start of a 3 day session, where after this everything (and I mean everything) went wrong!

Pike on the Thurne seemed to like  to feed after dark even in the dead of winter. A 20+ taken on slow float-trolled livebait.

Commando tactics on the Donkey...

Beautiful markings- A Donkey Double for Steve.

Steveo keeping a low profile on Martham Broad...

Bait.

Not bait.

One of a few nice fish taken from a couple of pre-baited spots on Horsey.

Fishing in the thick Marestail beds of Horsey Mere. Bit of a nightmare when you lose a biggie in it- as I did more than once.

Beautifully marked Pickerel from Somerton on the Thurne.

Taking it easy outside the entrance of Martham North Broad.

Carl demonstrates his new livebait retention system during a session on the Thurne. I can see it catching on...
