10 Top Tips For Winter Pike Fishing


Every pike fishing season is different, and it's easy to recall the occasional disaster that could have been avoided. "If only I had done that differently," is the all too common lament. However, those memories act as the driving force to make sure everything is in good order before you set off on another winter adventure.

In association with Angling Times, here are 10 tips for a successful winter Pike fishing season…

SET YOUR GOALS
It can be beneficial if you work out exactly what it is you want to achieve. For example, you might want to catch your first ever pike, or, like many, catch a monster pike. Therefore, setting your goals can dictate which style of pike fishing you go for, and most importantly, which venues you choose to fish.

CHOOSE VENUES CAREFULLY
As with all aspects of fishing, the waters you fish are a crucial part of the game, and if it’s big pike you’re after, this is arguably the biggest part of the puzzle. There is an old saying that goes: "If the fish you want to catch aren’t there, you won’t catch them!" So taking time to work out what you want to achieve, and where you need to fish can be very worthwhile.

Choosing the right venue requires serious preparation, a trip to the local fishing tackle shop, a weekly check on Angling Times, and a good old mooch around the internet can give you invaluable information. Venue knowledge is critical if you want to catch pike on a regular basis.  For example, is the venue very weedy?  If so, you need to make sure you have the appropriate kit so you can adapt to the conditions.

PREPARE YOUR TACKLE ITEMS
It’s crucial that you have the right tools for the job, and they work properly. Pike often fight hard, and as they get bigger, they become more and more powerful, so it’s crucial that you use tackle that can cope with the biggest of them.

Suitably powerful pike rods are a must if you are lure fishing or deadbaiting.   Even though very little can go wrong with a pike rod, it is always worth checking the rod rings for cracks, especially those at the tip.
Many pikers transport their rods ready made up, and if you are not careful the rings can chip, causing them to cut through your mainline like a knife through butter.

Reliable predator reels are equally as important, so check that they are running smoothly and that the bale arm is working well. If you have a freespool reel make sure the freespool mechanism is running smoothly. Every close season it's worthwhile to carefully unscrew the side panel and oil the internals to ensure they run smoothly.

Pike drop off indicators are also regarded as key item because they let you know the instant a pike has picked up your bait. If you use electronic drop-offs, change the batteries every season to ensure they don’t let you down. Check that the run clips are okay and they enable your line to easily pull free. Unnecessary resistance at this point can result in a pike dropping your bait before you even get a chance to strike.

CHECK YOUR TERMINAL TACKLE
Strong, reliable mainline is arguably the most important part of your pike tackle. Today there are no excuses for anglers fishing with poor fishing line. The difficulty is knowing exactly when to change that line before it breaks, potentially resulting in a dead pike. If you prefer monofilament lines, it's strongly recommended that you use a line of 18lb or above in strength, and you change it at the very least once a season.

Lines take a serious battering when pike fishing, especially if like many pike anglers you transport your rods around already set-up. Braid is slightly different, and in some respects tougher when it comes to the transportation of rods and general angling use. A lot of top anglers use 60lb braid for all their pike fishing, and generally speaking, this can be changed every three years by turning it around on the spool after each season.  Although more expensive than mono, braid works out cheaper in the long run and is very reliable.
Fox Rage Predator Twin Treble Trace
Pike trace components are also very important, and good strong materials should always be used. Whether you make your own, or buy ready-made kits from a fishing tackle shop, double check your old traces if you are using the same ones from last season.  Alternatively, don’t take the risk and buy or make a full set of lure traces.

IMPORTANT ACCESSORIES
There are a number of tools that you should never go pike fishing without. Long-nosed forceps are an absolute must. Although they appear robust, it is always a good idea to give them a good wash in warm soapy water, and then apply a tiny bit of lubricant to the join to make sure they open and close smoothly.
Greys Prowla Long Nose Pliers
The same applies to long-nosed pliers which are equally important if you are lure fishing. Make sure they have not seized up and are in good working order.

Weighing scales are another accessory that needs to work properly, especially if you are a stickler for your pounds and ounces. You will never go far wrong with Reuben Heaton Scales!

ORGANISE YOUR BAIT
Stock up in advance. At fishingmegastore, we sell a wide variety of frozen baits which can be bought in bulk.  This can save you a lot of time and can work out much cheaper than a weekly visit to the supermarket.

PREPARE YOUR LURE COLLECTION
If you have a collection of pike lures, now is the time to check all the hooks to ensure they are as sharp as can be. Buy a small hook sharpener and take time to work any suspect points. Don’t leave anything to chance, because a blunt treble hook can cost you that fish of a lifetime.

Keep hooks sharp
NETTING, UNHOOKING AND RETENTION
Having a large landing net is important, especially if you are in with a chance of catching big pike. Not only should your net be wide enough to take the biggest fish, but it's also recommended that you use a deep mesh landing net, so that it is difficult for the fish to escape as you leave it to rest prior to unhooking.  Better still, if the mesh if fish friendly, this will minimise any damage to the fish.

Use an unhooking mat
It's also very important that you use a large unhooking mat for unhooking and taking photographs. A feisty pike can be a handful on the bank, and it’s important that if it thrashes about, it is protected at all times.

Learn how to handle and unhook pike properly
It is worth carrying a pike retention tube with you, just in case a fish is struggling to go back safely. There are occasions, especially early in the season, when the water might still be relatively warm and pike can struggle to go back unassisted. However, some find that putting a fish in a tube and making sure it stays upright, is the best way for them to recover.

OTHER IMPORTANT ACCESSORIES
It is always worth checking anything that runs on batteries. Camera equipment, bite alarms, head torch, radio, and your mobile phone. There is nothing worse than finding out that batteries have lost charge on your first trip out.

CLOTHING AND FOOTWEAR
This is one of the most important aspects of pike fishing. Let’s face it, there are usually two factors that will send us home early; one is hunger, and the second is feeling cold or wet.

There are many great suits on the market to keep you warm and dry in even the worst of conditions. However there are three additional items that will make the experience even more comfortable. A base layer will help to retain body heat under your usual fleece and jacket. A base layer is perfect for the coldest of days. A thick neck warmer keeps all of the drafts from your top section and holds in a lot of your body heat. Finally, a good quality pair of wellington boots or waders that are lined, comfortable, and very easy to walk long distances are a must!

So if you want to avert any disasters during the winter pike season, it's important to prepare your equipment so that it's in good working order.  You never know what size of fish you will catch, therefore, having all the essential kit will help to minimise damage to the fish.

Locating and Catching Winter Cod


We are reaching the peak of the cod fishing season, a time when beach anglers are out all hours hoping to enjoy the year's best fishing. This article, brought to you in association with Sea Angler, sets out to help you improve your catches by talking about rigs, baits, sea fishing tackle, tides and weather.

The first rule of cod fishing is to find the fish. Lots of sea anglers rarely see, let alone catch a cod because they do not fish cod marks at the right time. The best cod venues are relatively well known, but it is a combination of season, weather and tide that dictates the presence of the cod.

A common problem is fishing a venue after hearing tackle shop rumours, often days after the actual catch, which may have been exaggerated anyway, and when the cod will be long gone. You are better off checking the tide and weather for the venue, when the fish were caught, and returning when conditions are similar.

Shore Fishing for Cod
The phrase "You should have been here yesterday" is a fact of life when it comes to sea angling. Don’t waste your time chasing shadows and fishing without regard to tide times and conditions.

Look to go fishing when the conditions are most suitable. Cod is a shoal species and consistent in their behaviour.  They move with the tides and weather in search of food, and taking advantage of what nature provides. The angler has several vital clues as to when and where to fish for cod. During daylight hours cod will rarely venture inshore in shallow, clear water where bright sunlight penetrates to the seabed.

It is only in very deep water, thick kelp and rock that you will find fish in these brighter conditions. It is during darkness and a flooding spring tide that marine life becomes more active. This is when cod and lots of other species move inshore searching for food.

A strong onshore wind that stirs and colours the sea often attracts cod inshore during daylight as they search for any marine food the rough sea has disturbed or killed. Obviously, different wind directions suit different regions of the coast, with anything onshore usually favourable.

Cod Tackle
Standard beach casting tackle is all you need for cod fishing. Anglers wishing to fish through the worst weather are advised to look for a beach rod capable of casting 6-7oz. This is because heavy lead weights punch through the wind and are best for towing large baits.

Leeda Icon M-Sport Match 13ft10 6oz
Sea fishing line diameter is crucial in terms of casting distance over clear seabeds, with 12-18lb the ideal range of breaking strains. For rough ground 25-35lb is best.

Penn Surfblaster II Fixed Spool Reel
Fixed spool reels and multiplier reels are relatively equal in terms of distance. Multipliers would appear more efficient, although fixed-spools score highly because of their rapid line retrieve, especially over rough ground.
Penn 515 GS Mag3 Multiplier
A major theme of cod rigs and tactics is that they are geared to casting maximum range. Cod is usually found below the low tide contours of the seabed, well back from any surf wave movement. Only on a few, deep, rough ground venues will you find fish within 30 yards. This is why most cod rigs feature bait clips to streamline the complete rig and bait package for maximum casting range.

Pennell Pulley Rig
Wired breakout leads are almost always required to anchor baits against wind and tide, particularly during rough weather. Cod baits need to be large and scented, although there is an option to use one very large bait or several small baits that create the same scent trail. Both require a rig that stands out for each tactic.

Hit the Tide Right
When cod fishing, you need to hit the right tide because fish may only be present for a while. The peak time for catching cod often coincides with the strongest flood or ebb tide. The fish seem to favour a particular time during the high or low tide, or when a change between two tidal directions occurs.

Edinburgh Tide Chart
The fish also use the power of the tide to travel to and from different venues and food sources, but even then may only be present for a short period as they move through the venue with the tide.

In lots of cases, venues have a hotspot that can be a feature, such as a beach point where tides meet, a gully or sandbank, a weedy reef or large groyne. So don't just be drawn by the mark's reputation - search out the likely hotspots for fish.

Best Baits
Cod have huge mouths and can engulf large baits, so there is no need for small sea fishing hooks and neat baits, although there is an important relationship between bait size, presentation, and casting distance.

Do you cast short with a large bait that will attract fish to it, or cast long with a small bait that has a limited scent trail? Compromise is the answer. Match the bait to the conditions and err on the large juicy side when possible.

Lugworms and squid are the two best baits, either together in a cocktail or on their own. One lugworm does attract the attention of the smaller species like whiting and can be torn off the hooks. A whole Calamari squid will last longer and is perfect for bigger cod.

Welsh Black Lug
Other cod baits include peeler crabs, although these are difficult to come by in winter and are most effective for codling. Crabs have some use for the bigger fish when cocktailed in a large mixture of baits. Other regional variations, which form parts of cocktails, include ragworms, white rag, Razorfish, mussels, queen cockles, cuttlefish, frozen uncooked prawns, plus small live pout and whiting.

So in essence, Cod is a shoal species and consistent in their behaviour.  They move with the tides and weather in search of food, and taking advantage of what nature provides. If you plan carefully by looking at the tide patterns, fish cod marks at the right time, and use the right baiting strategy, you won't be wasting your time chasing shadows.

Deadbaiting Tips for Pike Fishing


You can catch Pike throughout the year with lures, but October is a pivotal point. With the water temperatures falling to more conducive conditions for pike, it's time to focus on deadbaiting.

Live bait and lure fishing are effective methods, but for some top anglers, deadbaiting is the number one tactic on many venues when October rolls in. A well-presented, fresh, deadbait has as much chance of catching a big pike as a live fish. Deadbaits are also more convenient to use than live fish.

Frozen Mackerel
Just as with any bait, though, you will be rewarded for sourcing the right deadbaits and making sure they are as attractive to the pike as possible.

The strange thing, to which many top pike anglers will attest, is that smaller deadbaits appear to be much more effective than larger ones, especially for bigger pike.

The assumption is that pike are able to pick up these smaller baits more easily, and that in actual fact, within reason, pike are just as likely to find a small bait as they are a larger one. There are many venues where the pike have been caught before, so naturally, they will start to shy away from larger baits.
Prologic Power Pod Rod Pod
Fishing smaller baits also make life much easier for the pike angler. Weighing just a couple of ounces, such baits are easy to rig and can be cast some considerable distance if required, without the heavy pike fishing rods and lines needed for big baits.

PikePro Winterized Bait Oils 


Top Deadbait Tips
A simple way that you can increase your pike catches, especially at this time of the year when a lot of venues still contain quite a bit of weed, is to use a buoyant bait that is popped up offˆ the bottom.

PikePro Bait Poppers
Freshwater baits, such as roach and pollan, are normally naturally buoyant, but sea baits will usually need some form of buoyancy aid to get them oˆff the deck.

Popped Up Leger Rig For Pike
While a cork stick inserted down the throat of the bait is a tidy way of adding buoyancy, this does require that the bait is defrosted. A common solution is to use a foam polyball or poppers attached to a short length of rigging wire which can either be tied directly to the top treble hook or threaded through the bait using a stringer needle.

Fox Rage Predator Twin Treble 50cm
If weed is present then very often you can present the deadbeat fished the whole length of the wire trace oˆff bottom, so that the bait is still visible above the weed. This makes the bait much easier for a pike to find, and will greatly increase your catches.

If the lakebed is clear of weed, though, it's better to have the bait just standing on its tail. This still makes it highly visible but keeps it closer to the depth where most pike hunt, which tends to be no more than a foot or two offˆ the bottom.


Fox Rage Predator Powerpoint X-Strong Trebles
Chumming a swim is also an effective tactic when used in conjunction with deadbaiting.  A finely-chopped mixture of fish socked in pilchard oil would send out a massive slick of attraction, and on windy days the undercurrent would carry this for some distance. Given time, a chummed rod can out-fish an un-chummed rod by quite a margin throughout a day.

Fox Micron MR+ Bite Alarms
Deadbaits aren’t cheap, but when the time is limited on the bank, and you are looking to catch as many fish as possible it makes no sense to fish with the same baits all day. It's recommended that you change baits at least once an hour, more often if you are regularly recasting, as baits have the most appeal when they are fresh, and straight from the packet.
