In recent weeks, pike has clearly started bunkering. They are working on their fat reserves by eating a lot of fish to get through the long cold winter. We notice this in the beautiful catches of many and large pike. The great thing is that they are a bit heavier every week. We have been particularly successful with quite large soft plastics such as the Spro Shockwave and the River Roach Paddle Tail from Savage Gear. They cast off the shore zone and actively seek out the pike. That we have found them is clear every time by a hard bite. We fish the large open water with even bigger lures, including the 32 cm long Truline River Roach from Savage Gear. In recent weeks we managed to catch several pikes every fishing day, the largest of which was 117 cm long.
