ray.pngGrowing up around the sea, lakes and rivers, there is a significant advantage in owning a boat if you want to catch some decent sized fish. A boat gets you to the place, not able to reach from the banks or the beach. In 2016, I acquired a second hand lake boat for the purpose of catching some BIG Pike, hence the name 'Pike-Hunter'. The boat is 10ft (310cm) an was originally fitted with a 2HP Mariner outboard. In the late Spring of 2017, a 4HP FourStroke Mercury outboard was purchased as an upgrade for the 20+ year old TwoStroke 2HP Mariner.

Fortunately, in the Autumn of 2016, this all paid off after a family record catch of 36 Pike from mostly one Lake in Ireland and making some personal bests in the Family of 12lb and 14,5lb Pike catches.

The "Pike-Hunter" is mainly used for dead-bait casting and or trolling, since with trolling, we have so far caught the most Pike.
