Andrew Kilby also caught on the waggler for his 6lb 14oz
The Tydd Gote club were back on a windswept North Level on Sunday, writes Ken Wade.
This match saw Pete Emery top the field with a net of rudd and roach taken on the waggler and maggot for 7lb 9oz.
Andrew Kilby (pictured) also caught on the waggler for his 6lb 14oz of better quality fish with Archie Greenwood completing the top three with a pole caught 5lb 6oz.
This time of year is perfect for pike anglers and with so many Fenland waters to fish predator anglers are spoilt for choice. One of the best has to be the North Level Drain at the moment.
The fish are in prime condition and fight hard even with the water temperature not much above freezing.
Local rod Stuart Egginton braved the elements recently and was rewarded with a fantastic looking fish going to the scales at just over 17lb.
Not the biggest fish in the North Level Drain, but it was in perfect condition and great reward for hard work and perseverance on a bitterly cold day.
If you are into pike fishing then you will not find much better sport right now than the Tydd Gote water. Give it a try – I don’t think you will be disappointed.
