Piking on the Sluice

Another session on the Sluice today, I targeted Pike on one rod and I also fished the tip. I was to be kept waiting for my first fish, but it was certainly worth the wait. I cast a decent sized Perch to the far reed bed, it was soon under and away, I struck hard into the take and I felt a hefty lump on the other end. I played the fish hard and soon had her under control and in the net, I didn't see the need to weigh the fish but I put the weight at around 12 to 13lb's, my biggest fish of the new season so far.
