Summer predator campaign update
Joe Leathwood puts his dad to shame with this fit 12 lb. pike, which put up a real scrap after snaffling a couple of lobworms on a single hook (don't let Joe try and convince you he was pike fishing at the time !!!).
Lobworms are still picking up some nice bonus fish, and you'll never hear me complain about catching perch. However, the eel fishing is still slow with Paul and I catching just a handful of fish since the last update ... and it's not as if we aren't putting the effort in.
In the meantime I have caught my first bream on a deadbait ! No, I'm not kidding. It weighed 4 lb. 2 oz. and was nicely hooked in the mouth. It took a roach head section fished on a size 10 hook to a 20 lb. wire trace. In fact, Paul and I are catching quite a few bream and wire traces don't seem to put them off in the slightest !
Is anyone else catching ?
