Croatia: Dalien get another biggie „Pike season opening is around the corner and often the action is not early on as my next story will witness. I went to fish a smaller private venue available for pike fishing to do some tackle testing for Okuma, but the conditions were not what I hoped for. Though this lake has a fair population of pike the three of us could no…t get bit for 4 hours. The sun was bright, ice has just melted and pike were completely shut down. I tried basically everything I knew, but there was no takes. It became to clear that it`s is going to be a waiting game for at least some window of activity.
After hours of hard fishing a small group of clouds shuttered the sun and wind picked up a bit. Conditions slightly changed and finally I was rewarded with this big and fat lady that took Prey 115 on my super confident inactive pike presentation, stop and go retrieve! I caught another smaller one in next 10 minutes, and that was it for the rest of the day – 10 minutes of activity for the entire day!
When pike are inactive always try fishing with pauses, it just might be your ticket for sluggish early spring pike”
