We used to fish for em as kids with trebles n traces . Then use jackies to catch big ens that were down sink holes in lakeYes mate they would have been. These were about four weeks ago when I had the lake electrofished. No one really fish's for them apart from me occasionally. They have a nice easy life.
That brings back good memories as a kid my grandad used to take me pike fishing, he used to take the Jack pyke, he had a cast iron bath in a barn with salt water in he put them in there and eat them.
fck all wrong with that in my case its rumI don't know he used to do the same with Zander, I always thought it was to do with the mud taste,
Anyway a lot went with him he was an old retired gamekeeper, used to eat all kinds I think he only went to the supermarket for ice cream and whiskey.

The dark spots are the sink holes what we called pits that were caused when the did the pits . Think there bout 12 meters deep . They did a dive down em and found gold roman coins.
