First Pike – Hello again, Pike shaped guns, whatever next?! This was my 1st ever Pike I’ve caught, it was on a 7″ Yellow Goldfish dead bait cast out in a Trout Reservoir. I’ve got to admit I let my mate take the hooks out as I about shat my pants when I saw it come to the top! It weighed in at 8 and a half pounds which isn’t bad for a 1st one, the other difference i really noticed is they’re a nightmare to keep a grip on compared to the fat Carp! Cheers lads.
