Four Norfolk Pike For Over 115lb

Pike Anglers' Club member Paul King experienced a couple of red letter sessions to remember when he broke his personal best four times, topped by a 38lb pike.

The predator enthusiast, from Swaffham in Norfolk, targeted a local stillwater with deadbaits before swapping to lures to tempt the biggest specimen.

And within ten minutes of starting fishing again he had a 22lb 8oz fish in his net from the same swim.

Such incredible fishing lured him back the next day when he once again opted for a rubber Castaic lure to tempt another 'thirty', this time a smaller fish of 31lb, plus another of 24lb to round off an incredible two days' fishing.

"I sat there deadbaiting all day without a think and was thinking about going home," Paul told PAC press officer Chris Bishop.

"I decided to chuck a lure about and I had the '38' first. I felt a couple of bumps, then the rod went right over and I knew it was a very big fish.

"I went again the next day and had a 31lber and a 24lber within an hour, so I'd beaten my pb four times in a week," he added.

Although Paul considers his new best is a fish of a lifetime he still fancies his chance of beating it.
