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)

The Ten Pounder

The fishing blog is back in action after a short hiatus (I was actually working on a series of new articles for some fishing magazines).

Conditions were good but it was actually a very windy day.

The summer's been pretty much of an up and down. There's been rain, heavy rain and there's been sunny weather. In terms of fishing, well, at times, I was just a little bit put off by the uncertain weather.

A decent size 10 lb+ pike on a 1/4 oz double willow spinnerbait.

A close-up head shot of the pike.

Due to the recent floods in the Midlands regions, the rivers were practically un-fishable so to speak. So, it's all about the canals in the middle of summer. Even then, the fishing over these past few weeks wasn't that great. One one of my recent excursions, out of pure chance, I managed to hook and land a 10lb pike from seemingly open water at one of the local canals. It was probably one of the best fighting over 10 lb pike I have caught for quite some time.

Apart from that one fish, the rest of the day went slow. Well, guess I'll just have to wait for better conditions once more. And thanks for reading as always.
