Impressive Predator Season Continues

Dutch angler, Hans Moolenaar continues to catch even more impressive pike, this time from a large Stillwater with depths of up to 70ft!

Hans’ 25lb 5oz Dutch pike.

Now that the cold weather has finally arrived, Hans has been targeting a series of much deeper waters. This particular lake drops off to a staggering 30ft just shy of 50 yards out, it’s on this dropoff that He has been presenting his deadbaits.

“I have fished two, short morning sessions over the past week, resulting in five runs and four landed fish. All of them hit the magic mark of one metre, three of them even reached 110cm. Although not completely full, the pike have started to gain weight, feeding up on large shoals of silverfish. The biggest three went 25lb 5oz, 26lb 5oz and 23lb exactly.”

Hans presented his herring and horse mackerel deadbaits on a trace made from E-Sox Super Trace and Size 4 Extra Strong Trebles held in place using Slim Crimps and finished off with red E-Sox Crimp Sleeves for added visual attraction.
