Another enjoyable pike fishing session and how did the diet go in January?

In my bait freezer I’ve currently got roach, perch and sardines.

I’ll be using them up before the middle of March, when I stop bait fishing.

Then, I’ll be looking at replenishing stocks in advance of October.

However, that’s a long way off and I’m very much focused on the present for now.

I had a run within a minute of casting out but the fish – and most importantly the hook – were masked in weed.
