  • deadbait

    are you allowed to fish for your own deadbaits, tap them on the head and then use them on a different water for pike

    You need permission from the landowner to remove fish from a river. You would need permission from British Waterways for the canals. Pools etc. are usually privately owned, so again the owner / landowner. If a club leases the fishing rights on a water, it is also good manners to inform the club secretary, once you have gained permission from the owners.

        Oh sorry mate - I'll read threads properly in future ! Yes you are I believe. I would feeze them first though, so it doesn't look like you've just caught them !

            Not seen that mate, but all fish in outside ponds will be carrying some parasites. Freezing your deadbaits will ensure you don't transfer any and of course they stay fresh too!

            To be honest, I have always had more success with sea deadbaits than coarse fish myself and if I was only allowed to take one type ever again, it would be smelts.

              Im certain there are days when pike will show a marked preference,but for me its all down to confidence,if i were limited to 1 bait it would be sardine,Scorpio will be on in a mo to say pike DONT eat them,it makes no sense but i struggle to catch on lamprey but thet have taken thousands of big pike....confidence.
              Take nothing but photographs,leave nothing but footprints.

                  Try sardines mate and half mackerel.... herrings too are good, either half or whole if they are small.

                  Smelts though you will only get from the tackle shop, or online suppliers. They smell like cucumber and have caught me more pike than any other bait.

                  I don't use livebaits, so the supermarket fish counter is my friend, lol.

                    i use sardines and sprats from the fish monger but have gt a small stream nr me which is in a public park which is stuffed full with small brown trout(around 5-6 ins long) think these would be an ideal pike bait.
