John here

Piker for 25 years on and off, but back at it after some time abroad and little kids in the house.

100% lure fishing due to time pressure and frankly being to impatient for bait fishing.

Based in the pike hot-spot of East Kent 😞 but grew up fishing the North lincs drains.

Hi all

Welcome aboard :handshake:

To impatient for static fishing, wait a few years and you might find a long sitdown is just what you need.

I more or less stopped bait fishing about 15-20 years ago when I really got into my lures fishing and have done very little bait fishing since then, however, I have kept my dead baiting and bait fishing gear for the day when I feel like that Mike, I know one thing for sure, I cannot cast lures for as many hours as I used to back then :laughs:
The added bonus is that my gear will all be vintage by the time (I hope) that comes around.
Will.
