Fishing in Ireland, Pike, trolling

Pink squid anyone?

OK, so this is a bit ‘left field’ but I saw this big pink coloured artificial squid advertised and I thought it might work for pike. I know what you are thinking – Pike live in fresh water and have never seen a squid, pink or any other colour for that matter. But I will give it a try and see if the toothy green lads respond to it.

As it arrived, with small silver trebles

I bought it for a fiver from a bloke in Oldham on ebay.  When it arrived I decided the hooks were wrong so I changed them. They looked too small for the size of the lure to me. There is a second treble lurking in amongst those tentacles.

That’s better! A pair of size 2 bronze trebles added
