Time for excuses to why I haven’t posted a blog entry for such a long time, well here goes… I’ve been very busy recently with work, I’ve been covering for a colleague at a company I contract for while he was working away. My web design work has also been very busy. January 2010 started unusually busy with lots of website development work to do and it hasn’t stopped since, from commercial websites to personal blog installs. I have also setup a website / blog site for a organisation helping raise money to send deaf children and families to America to swim with dolphins, the site is due to go live at the end of this month ( I will post the link here soon) .
As I have spent so much time in-front of computers recently every chance I’ve had to get out and go fishing I have jumped at it. Back in March I hadn’t caught a pike since a trip to the fens back in Oct 2009, it was a PB pike but since then pike have avoided me like the plague. I had been out at least 10 times since then and had nothing. Well end of March I went out pike fishing with a friend and finally managed to break my blanking streak with two nice pike caught one on the lure and one on deadbait.
Some photos below.
(Me) Happy to actually catch a fish for once.
Andy below with his pike caught on dead baits.
Not monster fish by any means but good, healthy, hard fighting pike.
All fish went back into the water safely within 2mins of being caught.
