March 2014.....................and the winner is

So that was March and for many SENPAC members that brings to a close another piking season. But not for all, one of the benefits of living up here in the north-east is that, for those of us that enjoy a slightly extended pike fishing season, it is only a relatively short journey northwards to the cooler climes of the larger Scottish waters, that provide the opportunity to take advantage of the post-spawning feed-up. So that is something to look forward to as an alternative to the mysteries of the dark-side, boilies, bolt-rigs and the like?

One of eight for Dave
March also saw the conclusion of the SENPAC Club Trip Championship for the season with the final event fished on a day of mixed weather and equally mixed results. Hearty congratulations must go to the runaway winner, Dave Greally who, with a master class of eight fish on this final outing, cemented his almost total domination of this year's competition. Something of a tour de force from Dave this season which left the rest of us floundering in his wake.
As for the March fishing results for SENPAC members, well the highlight of the reports in this month's Newsletter is undoubtedly a second new pb of the season for Peter Armstrong, this time a wonderful fish of 21lb caught from north of the border. This, along with Peter's previous best of 16lb-8oz caught in December has meant that he has enjoyed his best season so far since joining SENPAC in July 2011. Just rewards for the significant effort that Peter has put into his pike fishing with us. Well done.

Peter's new pb

As for April, well we have the first of our SENPAC fishing socials organised for a bit of roach fishing on a local water and I suspect that a few of us will be heading north later in the month to renew the hunt for old Esox.

SENPAC continue to meet throughout the summer, on the last Tuesday of every month at the usual place, the Northumbrian Piper at Fawdon, Newcastle NE3 2AH. If you fancy a natter then why not call in and see us.
