Record-shaking Grafham pike caught

This impressive 34lb 8oz pike is one of the largest-ever from Grafham Water and fell to the lure of Marek Maciejewski.

The impressive predator, which measured 3ft 9ins in length, was hooked while fishing between the north tower and hedge end area of the 1,550 acre reservoir in Cambridgeshire and is the biggest this year from the venue.

Grafham’s pike record currently stands at 38lb and the fishery is also noted for its huge perch and zander. In the last few weeks it has seen some huge perch fall to lure anglers, with a 4lb fish to Gary Edmonds and several 3lb-plus specimens too. Fishing with both deadbaits and artificial baits is allowed at Grafham water from October 1.
