Float Ledgered Lure Fishing

Pike on a Float Ledgered Lure
I don’t know if you find this, but when my confidence is high I am more likely to try something a little different. And on this occasion the river was pushing though nicely so I thought I’d try a lure.

There is nothing unusual in catching pike on lures. But for a long time I have toyed with the idea of using a lure on a static rig in place of a deadbait.

A floating, diving lure was the obvious choice and the Shakespeare Big S seemed to fit the bill. After testing it out in the margin I could see that it could work. The lure was diving and lifting to the tune of the river and giving off a nice rattle for added attraction.

On a day when things were going right, well, they kept going right. Within 5 minutes the float tapped and then disappeared and line started peeling off the spool.

Although the result was a small jack pike, it could not be a more significant capture. My first, static, float ledgered, lure caught pike.

I can’t wait to give it another try.
