hi All we are 1 week away from our yearly hols on the boat. Picking up from Stalham this year not Acle so could anyone give us some pointers as which way to go for a few bream if possible. Also somewhere to catch some smaller stuff as we like to have a bit of a competition with the girls and its always number of fish not the weight. Just to mix it up are there any pike showing as never court a pike using proper pike gear and am going to give it a try this year. They normally like the small fish at Wroxham as you bring them in !!!

I don't think it will really matter where you go because if things remain as they are at the moment you will catch fish almost everywhere on the Bure. They are literally throwing themselves on the hook and that includes Pike. I have been really troubled by the Pike all this week snatching at several fish I was bringing in. Along with some large Roach and Perch I have also caught numerous Rudd which is always a bonus. I suspect that anyone night fishing will be getting bumper bags of Bream, as for me I don't like the slimy things.

Nice looking fish well done. Don't take this the wrong way but it would be kinder to the fish if you ditched the rag when handling. Just use the rag to wipe your hands after you have put the fish back. The slime is on a fish for a reason, that is to help protect it from diesis's etc.
If you look at any fishing mags with photos of specimens, they are always handled with bare (wet) hands.
Hope you get plenty more.

Thanks for the advice, i'd always been taught not to handle them with bare hands, so will take this on board when i'm back in November

That's no problem. They probably meant DRY bare hands.

Although to be fair I have only ever caught tiny little bream and roach until that day and have never seen one that big caught off the front of that bungalow in over nearly 40 years of visiting. There were tales of my Grandfather catching big ones back in the 60's and 70's. I hadn't realised how slimy Bream actually are! Thankfully I only caught one Eel last trip, although again it was bigger than the ones we used to catch 30 years ago
