Simon Ashton’s Latest Northern Pike

Thanks to Durham’s prolific specimen angler Simon ‘Busta’ Ashton for more pictures of handsome northern stillwater Pike caught on the E-Sox Piker Bait Rods!

Simon fished Herring and Joey Mackerel deadbaits on size 6 trebles, 28lb Super Trace wire and 18lb mono mainline – with a Drennan Subfloat inline to help keep his line away from the dangerous, rocky lake bed.
