6 Pike fishing tips

  1. PREBAIT

Prebaiting can work really well to concentrate bigger pike into your chosen area.

Always check for offers at the fish counter of your local supermarket! And if you any sea fishing, any mackerel, garfish (minus the beak), smelt and the like can be saved in the freezer.

And if you cook a lot of fish at home, freeze the raw heads two.

  1. STRONG GEAR

Always use strong tackle as pike can really pull a lot.

A minimum of 15 lb main line combined with 28 lb wire traces are a must and use rods of at least 2.5 lb test curve if not heavier.

2. HOOKING

I like to use a single treble hook to aid easy unhooking and strike as soon as I get a run to avoid deep hooking.

A hair-rigged chunk of fish on a single size 2 hook can also work very well and aids unhooking for novices.

3. SMALLER BAITS

Because I like to strike immediately, I like to use small baits even for big fish and don’t mind using 2 oz roach or small sections of deadbaits.

4. DRAW THEM IN

Many pikers don’t bother with feeding for small fish but I like to put out maggots and groundbait to bring in the silver fish.

You can, where allowed, try and catch livebaits as well over this feed which could produce an extra fish or two although bigger specimens often pick up deadbaits.

5. UNHOOK THEM PROPERLY

Please take the utmost care of every pike you catch, they really are not as fierce as they look.
