I'm keeping schtum
Yes, indeed it ismosseydog said:The eyes look really small on those rods, is that because they are for those types of reels?
On my 1st trip out with Vidar he lent me this little beauty, custom built. Hooked myself a 3lb common bream through the dorsel and it went off like a train, Vidars face was a picture, he thought I'd got a 20lb'er as we wound the drag up fully and it lunged under the boat, he looked quite astounded when the bream broke the surface. Anyways..what a lovely little light weight rod and paired with a small fixed spool it'll handle most things thrown with and at it. We both like using Vibration baits like the Jackall TC50/60/70, this is a Yo-Zuri Hardcore Drum. Match the lure, to the line, to the reel, to the rod and it's SOooo much more fun. You won't regret it DaveTunny said:This year I want to try with spin gear, rather than baitcast set up. Should prove interesting.
Yes, lighter gear for smaller pike is great fun, and when I have a walk up and down my local canal I use some totally different combosTunny said:Well definately not in the same league as Vidar,
Most of my Pike fishing has been done on
Redington 7' up to 1.75oz baitcaster with a shimano Calcutta and 20lb braid
Abu Pulse pistol grip 6' up to 0.75oz with abu Revo and 15lb braid.
I tend to fish spinnerbaits, and small lures for jack pike.

I love the Manns 1- range and I have both the baby, medium and large versions in my various lure boxes. The large 1oz version is one of my all time shallow diving luresTunny said:Strangely though two samller lures that keep producing good pike for me are Manns Baby 1-
Sorry Andy but when i saw Iestyn's comment i nearly fell off the chair it's going to be your fault if i can't move in the morning :lol: :lol: :lol: [no offence mate classic]mosseydog said:Andy thats a stunningly clear shot of that lure, could be out of an advertisement.
Sorry for the stupid, rod eye comment Vidar, was thinking out loud and couldnt help hitting the submit key,
Wait until I have finished and posted my new article about lure fishing for perch and chub :lol: :lol: :twisted: :twisted:saltiga said:Vidar,
I can't help but think to myself that the picture doesn't tell the whole story. I am sure there are more.......
