Reflecting the changes in kayaks there was paddlers representing JacksonKayaks, Ocean Kayaks and others along with pedallers on board the rapidly growing group of Hobie Kayaks and of course Dane Wood onboard the Old Town Predator with an electric motor. Youngsters just don't have the stamina nowadays.
My objective was to try and capture a pike on lure tactics. With the wind and rain thrashing in I thought trolling would be the way to go as on my last trip to Pitsford I had lost a real clunker on the same tactics.
Most of the lads were struggling with just the odd trout coming to our efforts.
I did manage to winkle out a couple of trout. No great size but one was very acrobatic.
