My first Chew 30 of 2012!

On Monday I fished with Chris Tarrant on Chew and we had a superb day on the baits. 
I would far prefer lure fishing, but as it was cold, we decided to put down the anchor and watch floats instead.

The last time Chris and I fished the Spring Pike Trials, he had a 30 during the full force of a snow storm!  This time, it was my turn to get one of Chew's big girls, weighing 32lb2 12ozs.  Herring was the bait and 9 foot was the key depth.

Chris also had 5 pike up to 10lbs and I had 4, with a decenty double of 17lbs thrown in for good measure.

The next day, I fished with Paul Mersh and his father Peter.  We had 12 pike to the boat, with Paul's biggest going 22lbs 4ozs and Pete's best at 17lbs.  I also chipped in with a fish of 20lbs 12ozs and our total weight was over 150lbs.

This was my last pike trials boat until October - on Thursday I fly out to Tasmania to film and fish the best stillwater trout fishing in the World!

When I get back I will update you on the trip.
