By DAVID HALL SOME great weights in important matches on both the Tees and Wear prove the quality of fishing available to the region's coarse anglers at present - while stillwaters such as Whittle Dene and the Big Waters at Seaton Burn have also been in good form. Hemlington Lake has been highly productive for carp anglers with commons to 10lb and mirror's to 14lb to boilies. In the west, carp sport on CADCAC's Crofton fishery continues to be upbeat with one angler taking over 80lb of...

Management at Blithfield Reservoir have denied reports suggesting a record-breaking pike has been caught at the site. Although primarily an 80-acre trout fishing water, the reservoir, near Abbots Bromley, is opened up each year for anglers to hunt the big pike known to inhabit the north and south lakes. With just a month to go before the next annual big fish assault, anglers at the Pike Anglers Club conference in Stoneleigh, near Coventry, were all talking of the capture of a monster...

Jim Crowley, 41, Bloomington, is best known in Central Illinois as a bass expert. He guides anglers to largemouth often, and bass fishing is often the topic when he writes magazine articles or appears on television. But, it's a different story north of the border. In Manitoba, Crowley is a pike specialist, an honor he was given last year when he completed the required task of landing five northern pike over 41 inches. Three came on one trip to Dunlop's Fly-In Lodge & Outposts in...

By Cain, Michelle L Lauer, Thomas E; Lau, Jamie K ABSTRACT. - One hundred and twenty five sites from 91 rivers and streams in Indiana were evaluated from 1990-2005 to determine grass pickerel Esox americanus vermiculatus habitat use. Macro-habitat analysis was conducted using the Qualitative Habitat Evaluation Index (QHEI) and had no significant relationship with grass pickerel catch. However, the individual components that made up the QHEI metric of "pool/glide and riffle/run quality" were...

By Ray Grass Deseret News The tiger muskie at Pineview Reservoir have become quite a catch in recent years. Under a new emergency regulation put in place yesterday, all muskie caught will have to be released. The new regulation calls for the catch-and-release of all muskie caught in Pineview. The latest record catch there was a 52-inch muskie, which, had it been kept and mounted, very likely would have been a state record. The latest catch and release, said Craig Schaugaard, regional...

By Eric Sharp, Detroit Free Press Jun. 26--It was slow. The 43 boats entered in the Michigan Ontario Muskie Club's annual charity tournament for the Special Olympics were picking and pecking at fish, and aboard Shelby Kristy we were mostly just picking. Two muskellunge had come over the transom, small fish of 24 and 34 inches, the latter fighting so hard and staying deep so long everyone thought it might be a winner. Since then we'd only had a couple of smallmouth bass and some...

On my daily trip to the bank for change, I saw my hunting buddy, Steve Damron, and he just had to show me his photos of his Canada fishing trip this spring. Steve, his son Stephen and Stephen's father-in-law, Allen Jackson, fished Moberly Lake, which is in a chain of lakes on the Bright Sand River in the Ontario Province. They were joined by a co-worker of Stephen's, Dave Hadel, of Overland Park, and Jim Irey, a retired school administrator, and Jerry Irey, a retired fire fighter from...

By Ed Dentry The swirl in the chop said northern pike. When the fish gulped the guy's bunny streamer, it showed nothing of itself. But you could see the boil, and it was profound. So was the bend in his fly rod. The beast sulked, as if it were thinking things over. Then it poured on the coal and pulled free. The hapless angler left without commentary, which said volumes about fishing's mood on this breezy day in the shallows at Taylor Park Reservoir. That was his chance, and he blew it....

It eats mainly fish, but water voles and ducklings are also known to fall prey to pikes. Moreover, it is a cannibal. This trait serves in maintaining a stability in the pike population. Young pike have been photographed eating pike of a similar size. Pike grow to a relatively large size: lengths of 150 cm and weight of 25 kg are not unheard of. The pike generally...
