Pike Fishing With Deadbaits - Rigs, Tips & Tactics

For the latest episode we try something a little different, as we head out in search of Pike. Now what Steve knows about Pike fishing can be written on the back of a postage stamp, so we teamed up with From The Waters Edge regular, good friend and Piking pirate Jack Mills.

Heading out afloat on Jack's own boat, the plan was to pick his brains about all things Pike related, finding out all the details on his favourite rigs, tips, tactics and baits, and of course trying to catch a few fish along the way!

At this time of year Pike fishing with static deadbaits is one of the most popular ways to target these hard fighting predators, and it can often be a method that produces some of the bigger fish, so it seemed a good place to start.


An early start saw us at the slipway at first light and after loading the boat we set off into the mist, on what was cool, calm, crisp winter morning. After a short motor up stream we soon arrived at the first spot, the mud weights were gently eased to the bottom and the first rods baited and cast. The traps were set and conditions looked good...

To find out exactly how we got on and to see if we managed to land a fish or two, you can check out the video below...
