I suck at perch fishing!

not much context to this video, really just went out to try target some decent …


  1. Do you use braided line if so what pound line?

  2. I don't use braid for Pike, don't like it.I just use straight mono,about 12/15lb breaking strain.

  3. NotRightNow ImBusy

    hi great vids could I use a 2,5 lb 12 foot carp rod or is the poundage to low?

  4. You could use that, but its way overkill I reckon. We like a bit of sport with the rod having a bend in is.But try it first. You might be glad of it if you hook a lunker.

  5. hy , where is this river , and what is the name ? 4 meterhechte vor halb 9 ich will da auch hin , das ist doch mitten in der laichzeit oder was …
    thx greats from germany

  6. River Stour. Dorset.England(South)

  7. Hi what is your pb pike

  8. they have some teeth have you been bitten by one yet?

  9. They don't actually leap up and grab you, but they can nick you if you are not on the ball when unhooking them.

  10. I don't fish for big pike, just any pike. I am happy with whatever comes along.24/26lbs if I recall. It was on a lobworm when fishing for seatrout/barbel on 5lb line I think. Lucky.

  11. No, I don't prebait rivers as it will wash away. You could do it in lakes if you wanted to. I would just use sprats as they are cheap, catapult them out near overhanging branches, deep holes, side of weedbeds etc. Half a dozen each spot. Fish the next day if you want. Or do it a few times in a week,then try.

  12. danke und petrie heil

  13. I got my first pike ever on normail 10lb line and two maggorts and one sweet corn I was buzzing it was 5lb and only on a size 14 hook but in was in the side of it's mouth lucky!!!!

  14. You were lucky there. Well done. They normally bite through any nylon line.

  15. I know I was but it was a lovely catch thou think I'll put a wire trace on from now on!!!! i now know why people love pike fishing!!!! and thank u for your reply!!!

  16. No, always use a wire for the trace.

  17. keep making videos there great to watch i subscribed to your channel

  18. who taught you to fish, john wilson?


    what video camera do you use and what software do you use to edit

    Kind Regards alex

  20. Several cameras. Can't say which is the best to get as we don't sell them. Best to ask a proper video supplier. I think the top edit is supposed to be Final Cut pro .You can always buy add-on software for additional effects, but allow around £10,000 for decent camera and software. We use Sony. Suggest also trying a local video camera club in your area, the members will be a huge source of information on which units do what. We just point and press with ours.

  21. Hi Graham, im wanting to sstart pike fishing but i have one question and i thought id ask the best, Should i put Fox Soft Steel on or some kind of mono line or a braided line? Thanks Mate Tight Lines

  22. Never even heard of that make you mention, but if you mean steel wire,yes,use a wire trace. If you mean reel line I just use straight mono 12 to 15lb.I don't really like braid, though it has its uses in sea fishing. I just use Sufix mono or Ande premium.

  23. I caught my 1st pike last week using your twitch sprat method, 9lb. Will be going back to try and catch more, might give some lures a try too

  24. Can you tell me what music that is on the background?

  25. Pike snApped my line last night and swam off with my lure 🙁

  26. Bit disappointing he lifted the pike up in the net like that to weigh it. 

  27. I can't watch that guy, he's to funny and it isn't awesome fishing

  28. r u using barbed or semi or barbless

  29. In the spring time what fish would you expect around a mouth of a river opening to a lake? It is around 10 feet deep.One last thing what lure/live bait would you recommend?

  30. Great video ! . . I admire your relaxed angling skills.  Tight lines from Martin Griffin . . (Griffin camo leads). 

  31. Great video but I don't understand why you are leaving the pike for a while before striking …. Won't this result in deep hooking? ….. And why are you striking like you are a madman yanking and yanking like you are trying to start a lawnmower ???

    • Just the I way set the hook.The soft rods barely pull a hook in.Of course if you use rods like broomsticks you don't need to set the hook so firmly ,but I like the sport a softer rod gives. I strike when I want,after 45 years piking I have learnt to differentiate between a small jack turning a bait in its jaws and a big Pike moving off.Can't really show it on film,it comes with experience. If you strike early and miss I never worry,its probably a smaller Pike,even down to 1lb in weight.They can run off with a big bait.

      Hi Graeme, I notice you talk of and use the VB double hooks. I've searched for them and it turns out they have now been discontinued and replaced with a 90 degree angle double for some reason. And an alternatve Drennan hook has also been discontinued. Could you please recommend a double so i dont have to go to trebles? Ta.

    • +winchuni22 hi i had the same, the 90 degree ones are fine, better in some respects as u can set them so 1 hook is each side meaning once the pike grabs u can strike early and still connect

    • +madmarthur77 Oh right, cheers. I was a little uncomfortable in the amount of time to strike on these videos – although it obviously works for him. 

      I was planning to adjust it to strike quickly which you should be able to do because its similar to lure fishing and when you get a 'hit' you strike.

      I've found static deadbaits different though. I've found pike mouth and fiddle with it and the best time to strike is when the float actually moves rather than just bobs about. That how you find it? 

  32. Great video Graeme I realized how fast your subscribers are going up keep up the awesome work.

  33. This guy absolutely creases me up lol. Just every thing about him hahaha. Hes a legend

  34. Now thats a great days fishing. Quality

  35. Another great video Graham. I can see the joy you get from fishing and not someone boring the hell outa us with rig details.

  36. jesus… you always weigh pike like that?!

  37. It doesn't beat mine .  I caught a 23lb Pike about 1956 or 1957 near the bridge that leads to Hurn Court Agricultural school.  Bob Olley the river bailiff took it back to his house in Holdenhurst Village  and weighed it on his salmon scales as my scales only went up to 14lbs.

  38. Where abouts on the River Stour is this?

  39. Absolutely brilliant video, that was some days fishing! Were you using single hooks for the sprats, if so what size? Cheers
