The problem: You can only use sea fish as bait for trout-water pike.
Fair enough, you don't want to introduce a disease to the water with livebait or dead naturals. And it's the same for everyone. But are trout-water pike associating sea fish with danger? Especially at the end of the season when they've seen it all before.
The idea: Mimics!
I've been experimenting with dying herring to look like trout, I've tested a few food colourings and created a blend that will stay put even in running water - the tap test. The cat approves, but will the pike be fooled? Now, where to test them...
PS. Gardening is for the closed season!
I had to check the calendar before I posted and it is deffinately not April 1st!!!ReplyDelete
