Another stroll along the cut..

Postby Steve Duffy » Wed Feb 11, 2009 12:27 pm

The weather forecast was sunny but cold and for once it was spot on.The canal was still frozen in parts but that did'nt deter the dynamic pike hunting duo.The plan was to walk and fish from the Kings Arms upto the Saracens Head at Halsall.where we would reward ourselves with a pint or two of the black stuff. :D
Just past the Ship Inn,my mate Steve was first in with this nice Jack.

This Jack had a big stab wound in its back,possibly from a heron or cormorant.Often,just as the spinner came into the bank good sized perch would appear from nowhere and attack.We did,nt get any hook ups this week though.Eventually I got into the action with this small Jack which took the lure about 2 foot out from the bank 8)

After a few pints in The Saracens Head we walked back along the cut to the car.By this time the canal was starting to freeze over again.After a day in the cold I decided to end it with this tasty treat.

One of the nicest keeeeeeeeebabs I've had in a long time from a new shop in Irby village.All in all a great day out.Sorry some of the Pics are carp,and my photobucket does not seem to want to work properly again.
