Never say die!

Well today was another typical example of my recent pike fishing trips, no bites and horrendous weather conditions. All these factors combine to test the patience and willpower of the keenest angler. Just to set the scene here is a picture from my previous trip out piking with Chris to salford quays, a blank, the hailstone was a nice addition to the relentless rain and wind though!

Today's trip was to Rhodes lodges in middleton, a last minute choice of venue owing to the weather today. Its a venue I have previously taken many small pike out of on lures so I thought it may provide a few runs for Chris and myself how wrong was I!

I had 3 rods out on deads one on roach and the other two sardines and chris had 2 out too. No runs at all and I even chucked lures around to no avail. With a few few hours remaining I broke out my secret bait a small jack pike that I found recently dead which I had chucked in the freezer. Ougt it went on the ledger rod but still no interest.

As Chris was slowly starting to pack up, he isn't as keen/mad as me I rerigged the jack to wobble it as I have some success in the past using small jacks sink and draw style. a few casts later and the jack was snatched in the margins and a few moments later this 8lb 12oz fish graced my net, a skinny fish that should have been a low double but a good result for the never say die attitude!

And Chris was laughing at me when I cast my jack bait out!

  1. If the Trx Suspension Training package is all rugged and out of shape, regardless of how much of a treasure the inside is, no one will be interested.
    Some of these Trx For Sale will come with the product for free but if high quality package has to be done like in wholesale, the buyer has to compensate for the extra packaging.
    It seems that among the consistently hottest sellers from this TRX For Sale line is the Highrise.
    High quality packaging of TRX Suspension Training Sale, watches, earrings and other help protect them from getting dust or moisture from the environment.
    When people see a buyer carrying a bag with the Cheap TRX of the company, they will definitely get attracted and pulled towards with an urge to get the same.
    trx suspension training also enhances flexibility in transport.
    If the TRX For Sale has a good shape, it will be much manageable to transport and distribute.
    This is highly paid much to details because the trx for sale company has stores all over the world and a slight mistake can end up destroying the whole collection.
    In today's world, nothing without a TRX Workouts Sale package has the ability to sell including an eraser.
    Simple though very important thing to consider is that the trx straps sale package is not only aimed at preserving, but to get the attention of the target market.
