Trout water pike twenty

Friend Andy Hutson and Martin Ford enjoyed a pike fishing session to remember, boating eight specimens topped by this 20lb 4oz fish (right).
Fishing on Toft Newton Trout Fishery in Lincolnshire, the pair snared all their fish on large rubber shads by targeting numerous spots on the 40-acre reservoir.
The biggest of the haul, which was caught by Andy, sets a new venue record which was then nearly matched by Martin, who landed an 18lb 15oz esox shortly afterwards.
The fishery is planning more pike trials for next winter. Anyone interested should call 01673 878453.
