Still waiting for a pike .Its been a 3 month quest without the slightest sign of a run or a take...my last trip was down to walcot in deepest shropshire i used to love the place back in the glory days of the BAA had a few pike and the surroundings were second to none.This time i was a little aghast the bank had been ripped apart and was devoid of all growth but i expect thats progress.there is also a weed problem down there.the First pegs by the gate were taken and on inquiring they had one pike about 5lb on a dead bait..so im keen as mustard its a big lake and 2 hours later i still hadnt had a touch but had seen some wood peckers and buzzards.I have been using these new rubber lures that look like fish there movement in the clear water was about as realistic as i have ever seen and i am convinced its not my methods or technique , maybe im just unlucky.i intend to pursue this method through out the summer in till i succeed .looking back i should have gone on the avon at pensham .But i have had some great times just walking and chatting with who ever i meet so all in all i am enjoying my trips in pursuit of the elusive Esox Lucius.

    Keep at it Larry law of averages say you will have a run soon or take soon. What make are the lures as I've been talked into going with a lad from work and fancy a bit of lure fishing rather than sitting on a dead bait

    dead bait would work better if ya put it on the hook instead of sitting on it

    If you're still after Pike Larry, try Uckinghall Pool. There's plenty in there. Went to catch my first pike acouple of seasons back. made a few visits since. Wobbled dead bait, jobs a good 'un.
