Esthwaite 28lb pike waits until darkness

Esthwaite water has been in good form for pike this winter as David Black discovered when he banked this 28lb 4oz specimen.
The Barrow-in-Furness angler visited the Lake District venue, where he fished a static lamprey section on two treble hooks from a spot near the dam wall. David had to wait until darkness when the giant predator was hooked.
The venue is open to pike anglers until March 31. Call the fishery on 015394 36541.
