A blog about multi-species lure fishing and life in the U.K and abroad and a little bit more. Always believe in lures! (TheFishingboy@gmail.com)

Early summer pike fishing

It's that time of the year... early summer. Although it's generally a time when bass anglers all over the world get to enjoy fishing post-spawn bass, over here in England however, things are a little different. Most species are probably still in the middle of the spawn as water temperatures rise. And, with day temperatures warming up considerably over the past week, fishing has been quite slow so to speak.

That's a monster and it's pushing 20 lbs!

Just moments before... it was still fighting hard in the water.

On this occasion, we were fishing at a canal in the Midlands regions and caught some good pike. I have a 7 lb'er to kick start the day after a follow from a huge zander on my first cast. After that, Sharky hooked and landed a monster pike that was pushing the 20 lb marker and it was one hell of a pike.

That's one for the elusive metre and it's definitely over a metre long.

Amazingly, the fishing wasn't as good as the weather.

Apart from that, we didn't see any perch at all. Well, excluding a baby perch I manage to catch on a creature bait, the big ones were not where to be found. Till next week. Keep fishing. Thanks for reading.
