Hi,

I am having my first fishing trip in Feb 2013 with Freedom Boating. Originally booked as they were in Horning and always fished there in the winter with Pike to 30lb.  Now they have moved and I have never been on the Southern Broads.  For past 20 years always fished by Horning / Wroxham.  Without giving away your secrets, is the Southern area of the Broads good for Pike fishing in the Winter especially Feb time.

Many Thanks

The Southern rivers provide excellent fishing but it is
tidal and requires a change of technique, stret pegging
for example is good. Mind you, you need to get it
right! Wrong lead for the flow and you can sit there
all day for nothing. Ebb tides tend to be best.

The Southern Broads have all been hammered and the
fishing is a shadow of what it was. Too many numpties &
brain deads.

The rivers, unless you are very lucky, are something of
a needle in a haystack. The Wensum at Norwich always
produces for those who know the river.

Even the locals blank!

Thanks for the reply.  Is it still tidal near Brundall and that area, as was hoping to fish live bait and also ledgered dead bait.

Many Thanks

It is, a one and a half ounce lead is the norm around there. Go off the beaten track & you will be spoilt for choice.

I don't do a lot of piking myself, but Rockland Broad & Dyke seem to be very popular. Pike are very much the same wherever they are found on the broads, “Find the prey fish, find the Pike", that would probably lead me up the Chet and as I said Rockland Dyke and Broad.

Thanks very much guys.  Very hit an miss with the bait fish for me unfortunately.  Caught quite well on a swim feeder in November but last February fished for a week and just could not seem to nail the roach on the rivers.  Must still be there but if anyone has any tips it would be most appreciated.

Many Thanks
