Two quick catches

I had intentions on fishing the canal today, but over night temperatures of around minus 3 put pay to that idea. Despite the big freeze I drove around to several spots of the canal but eventually settled on fishing a stretch of the drain. I met up with JP and we decided to leapfrog rather than stay put, if anything at least we'd keep warm by moving about.

Within 10 minutes of JP was into a fish, a Jack Pike had fallen for the old Mackerel trick. Within 5 minutes I was also into a fish and of a similar size, this catch was not without a small drama though as JP had to do a swift net scooping maneuver as the fish shook the hooks. Well done mate! We moved swims several times but the next and last fish came to JP another Jack pike of around 5lb's
