Afternoon on the river & barbel number two hundred of the season! One of four that found the net, that's 200 barbel to one pike! I'm not complaining about the barbel - far from it - but I need to find some more local pike fishing next winter - to the Google!
And I found the shoal of big chub, they had moved about quarter of a mile. More spread out on a shallow glide I bagged three; 5lb 8oz, 4lb 14oz, & 4lb 12oz. Even though there are 12-15 chub in the shoal the five was a recapture - at least I know it's the same shoal!
