Prebaiting for pike pays off for Mick Brown

Predator guru Mick Brown found an ice-free venue recently, putting in just a few hours to tempt this pristine-looking pike.

Weighing in at 20lb 13oz, the long fish came from a swim on an undisclosed gravel pit which Mick had been prebaiting.

The well-known pike angler tempted the fish with legered, popped-up Dynamite Baits joey mackerel.
