Pike personal best from River Wye

This mint-condition pike was the result of Lewis Baldwin’s first piking session of the winter and came from the beautiful River Wye.
It weighed in at 23lb 4oz and sets a new river personal best for the experienced all-rounder from Kingston-upon-Hull.
A BaitBox sardine fished on a rig that incorporated a 20lb Gardner Hydro Tuff mainline also proved the downfall for another pike weighing 18lb 8oz.
“The seemingly endless floods have meant I haven’t been able to get out much, so to have a result like this is a real bonus to say the least,” said Lewis.
