View Full Version : Rudd plays dead

Im sure all the pikers out there have had this. Your livebait isn't looking so lively anymore so you give it a lifeline and chuck it back in only for it to swim off as if nothing had happened.

This rudd had the same idea, "ill play dead and he won't eat me".

Thats not right.... pike must have known it was a divvy fish or the pike is just not hungry!

Simon have to agree, I think the pike was not hungry or had an idea it was not what it seemed. They are not stupid they know when something is not quite right.

I use a livebaited perch, a pike of about 8lb shot out about to smash it, stopped, inspected it then bolted.... More proof pike are not daft
