20LB PIKE NEW RECORD + 18LB PIKE

Postby mick-hay87 » Tue Nov 03, 2015 7:49 pm

Fished Magiscroft for pike for the fisrt time this season - using two rods. First pike caught early morning using float and home made jig trace only set at 4ft and just constant jigging and moving. Taken from peg 23. Weighed using my scales in at 20Lb, I phoned Ronnie Weighed and photographed by Ronnie - coming in at 18Lb.

After releasing the 18Lb pike I moved to ped 27 fishing the marginal areas no deeper than 6Ft. Only 15 minutes later and the float on my fledger set up disappears - hooking into another monster instantly. With full jumps clear of water and head shakes. 15Lb line is a must!!!
Instantly looks fatter than last one. Weighed on my scales in a 22.5Lb. Ronnie was called for again and magiscroft scales show 20Lb. And was informed i now hold magiscroft record! :D

And Thanks To Ronnie for making effort to come down to the two furthest away pegs. cheers

Bigger to be had for sure...
