I am off too Pitsford for the Perch and pike again tomorrow.
It seems to be all or nothing there, so far I have not blanked on my visits but it is usually hard work as the predators have seen all the lures in the box by this time off year.
My plan will be to keep it simple with the soft plastics and spoons and hope that finds a BIGGER perch or a mid double Pike.
Watch this place.

It was a great Autumnal day on Pitsford with little wind and an overcast sky, I regretted not taking the fly rod but we had come for toothy critters.
It was also very quite we were the only boat out off the dock at 9 am and we only counted four other boats out during the day 3 predator fish and 1 fly fishing for trout.
No wonder trout fishery management are keen to open for lure fishing.
The water level is down, you could stand in the boat going through the tunnel ( for those who know Pitsford) and parts of the reservoir were very green with suspended algi.
The pike and perch proved elusive for everyone, I tried all the usual tactics and and few new ones but could only tempt follows from small pike and trout.
The fish finder found some new drop offs and we fished them confidently and despite seeing fish on the electronics we could not catch them.
Fishing a variety of spoons got the trout responding with knocks and taps with three hooked and released at the boat including a couple of good browns.
At around 4.45 the trout started to rise in the flat water and it amazed me how they were prepared to chase a big spoon all the way back to the boat, it made me think about the small flies that are recommended for dry fly fishing.
Happy days.

Hello All
Here is a little tip from the fishing den of Fryfishing.
I have been looking at a product called "Mend It" which is from the states ( but available in the UK). It is a glue that melts torn soft plastics and sticks them back together.
This is a money saver if you are using the bigger swim baits and Mr or Mrs Pike has a chew on them and leaves them full of splits or pull out pre mounted hooks.

So here is my tip, I have tried plumbers plastic pipe weld which is much cheaper ( also had a tin already) and seems to work in the same way but does need to be left for a while so that is goes off and forms a seal. I have then for extra protection used a lighter to gently melt the exterior of the join on the body and it seems to be job done.

There is a lot of stuff on YouTube about repairing S.P's if you are looking to save a favorite swim bait.

When I get time in my busy life I will post a before and after picture.
Happy days

Here is a before and after, glued with the pipe solvent and then finished with a flame from a lighter.
