It did rain BUT that has nothing to do with the stopping play! Why?
OK, my thoughts were that the pike were starting to spawn last week and I wasn't wrong! I arrived on Friday with the temperature having been fairly static. I Immediately saw my pike but with a few battle or were they "lurve" scars from spawning? This pike was not interested in feeding as a white bunny bug was dropped in front of its nose... it wouldn't even strike in anger!
In the next bay a couple of pike were rattling around the reeds... OK, I hate to be disturbed as well... We'll leave them to it for a while.
I'll be back!
