Excellent day's fun, of not a bit stormy. We had five pike on dead baits & lures. Loads more dropped runs & follows.

Not so good today, just one 8lb pike to a deep-diving lure. Least the weather was awesome!

Some of the pics on here seem to be confused with this venue and Drayton which is down the road. Daventry Res/Country Park is fished off a damn wall of massive rocks. Bit of a hairy trek down but once you're set up its fine. Travel light, so it's easy to climb down or move. Top pike runs water in the winter, I've had fish up to 15lb but there are stacks from 6lb-11lb in here. Most deads and lures work. In spring summer take a feeder rod down and fish groundbait feeder for some big hybrids. Biggest so far was 4lb 6oz. This is a massive expanse of water but you don't need to cast to the moon to catch, for pike - 10 to 30 yards is plenty and for silvers/hybrids 30-50 yards.
