Come off the back of a 4 trip blank i took a trip after work to a reliable swim on a large old lake.
For the last 2 seasons I have been after a double figure pike. Everyone else seems to have stories of double figure pike being caught like they are common everywhere but I just couldn't get one. Last season I had 2 9lb15oz ones.

Just as I was about to pack up the alarmed beeped and I was in. Half way through the fight the other rod started beeping. Cursing the pike for picking up my other line I took it off the rests and out it aside to get it out the way and landed the fish. A nice fat pike of 12lb 10oz and my double figure duck was broken.

I brought in the other rod expecting a tangle but got a chewed up bait back, looks like I had a double take.

Next target, a 20...

well done buddy nice to get a personal best gives a hell of a feel good feeling, trouble is the bigger they get the harder it gets to beat.
