It was great to meet up with Mal, Mike, Gary etc who are Docks regulars and the ones to beat on there as they know the water so well.
Anyway into the hat I went and pulled out peg 13 which I was pretty pleased with as it was on the main pontoon next to the flyer! Anthony Hogg was the one on that today and he is another who knows the docks very well so it was certainly going to be a challenge.
I had planned two feeder lines, one at 25 turns and one at 32 turns, both with taped up feeders fishing lake mixed with some special G gold to add a bit of fishmeal to it.
Bites where instant on the all in and the rod was literally dancing as soon as it was hitting the bottom with roach constantly tapping. I had a few small roach before the problem started! I've never had a pike problem on here before but today was different. Every 15mins or so as I was bringing in these Roach a pike would attack it and inevitably snap me up. This went on most of the day sadly and I lost count of how many times I had them attack. The dock has had an explosion of Roach this year which has definitely brought the pike in with it!
I finished up with about 7lb of Roach (if I remember right), with no decent skimmers making an appearance. Anthony next door won after fishing a great match catching roach on the whip then switching to the feeder for a few good bream and some skimmers.
One bizarre thing though, take a look at the pictures below and you can see how the level dropped over the 5 hours that we were sat there. Its a big expanse of water as well for it to drop on that scale but as ever the dock threw up some great weights.
