Dyson cleans up with a near 24 pounder!

Warren Dyson started our day on Chew with a bang by landing a superb 23lb 12oz pike on the first drift. This is his personal best pike on a lure - which happened to be a Silver Professor Kusami Spoon - the same lure that accounted for Chris Tarrant's 27 lb pike in the Autumn Chew Pike Trials.

The weather today was great for fishing - overcast skies and light winds - the rain spoilt things at times, but for February, this had to be almost perfect - pity the pike didnt agree though!  Most of the bait anglers struggled to put together a few jacks, but the 3 boats that constantly drifted, using assorted lures, were rewarded with plenty of action.

My mate Tim had the best boat, with 8 pike to 16lbs and most of the others double figure fish.

My day was a bit up-and-down to say the least - landing Warren's PB was the highlight, but losing a certain 20 at the side of the boat and not being able to convert follows into takes - were definitely the low points!

Ah well, it's days like these that keep us coming back for more ....... and more .............. roll on next time.  I'll keep you posted.
