So to try and combat the east wind curse instead of going after trout today I decided to go after Pike on Loch Lomond. To cut a long story short I caught nothing however did manage to watch several Pike spawning amongst the weeds.
This was after I had covered an enormous amount of water. The loch was a lot lower than several weeks ago when I caught my first pike from a loch. It meant I could wade very far out and cover lots of water.
From what I read Pike are not interested in feeding when they are spawning although the post spawn time can be a bonanza – this was the reason I headed down today.
