At 8am i had a run on the distance rod which after a cracking scrap resulted in this bruiser pike of 10lb 13oz. I didn,t take a proper picture as i didn,t wan to alert the guys getting their boats ready that i,d caught one, or else they would of been straight over.
Around 10am the dreaded sail boats started to launch and did their usual and made a bee line straight for me. Why they have to come so close to the bank where they can easily see someone fishing is beyond me. One was so close his keel clipped my line. Bloody annoying it was and by midday i,d had enough and moved to another area of the lake.
