4th October Chew Lake piking

I had just returned from a weeks holiday in Cornwall where the temperatures reached summer Mediterranean standards of almost 28c in October. Has the world gone mad?

It was time to get back to the fishing again.

What could be better than the 2nd day of the pike fishing on Chew for the year.

Andy Cowley and I arrived at 8am and had the normal cooked breakfast in the restaurant before getting our boat sorted. The weather was predicted to be cloudy and dry, however it was raining a little so we had to wear water proofs.

Expectations were really high as we headed out.

Well that’s where it started to go wrong. We just couldn’t find the big pike, sure enough we caught throughout the day, well Andy did mostly. They were all small fish and no doubles. The pike looked stunning though.

My¬†fishing was not so good I lost 3 of Andy’s lures and hooked an anchor rope on one occasion. We drifted around in all the normal places and really tried our best but couldn’t get amongst the larger fish.

There were one or two large pike caught plus many small ones but it was tough going for most of the pike anglers It’s probably one of the worst starts on chew. Not sure why because the fish are there however the lake is very low. The water was quite clear with a little algae bloom, but really very fish-able. The water temperature was high from the previous weeks sunny conditions and at times was warmer than the air and I’m sure it couldn’t have helped.

Never mind I’m going back with Andy again on the 18th October lets hope it fishes better.
