Wet weekend stint results in 20lb pike

Seasoned pike angler Jon Neafcy bagged his first twenty of 2014 with this specimen from a Lancashire Stillwater.

The Baitbox and Pikepro consultant tempted the 20lb 2oz predator during a weekend session in torrential rain.

The Wigan rod said: “The fish was caught at range in a slightly deeper area of the shallow water I was fishing. The rod looped round on the strike and the pike gave a very good fight.”

The 41-year-old managed four other fish, including another three over 10lb, using legered Baitbox brown trout.
