New lures for pike fishing and Pike spinners baits.

From what ever side of the pond you fish from, whether you call them Pike or Muskies. Here in the UK the temperatures are dropping and those big lumps are now hopefully on the feed.

New Pike Spinners and Lures


Now that winter is only around the corner and the temperatures are dropping fast.

The thought of relaxing next to a lake and trying to catch carp from the surface. It couldn’t be any further from my mind.

Its now the time to start walking along the banks of the River Ouse or my local canal searching for Big Pike

Pike lures for fishing

I can’t think of anything better than just walking for miles in the cold fresh air just after the winter sun has come up.

Constantly casting across to the waters edge. Just to get a decent take from a large pike or even a hefty perch.Its my kind of heaven!

Time for some new Lures

New pike season always means buying some new spinners and shads for tackle box.

Pike lures

Savage Gear Pike 4D Line Thru Lure

Catch a pike with a pike. I was drawn to this purely as a Pike is very territorial. With its aggressive nature they will attack there own kind.

The details on this lure are incredible. So lifelike it will be even harder for the predator fish to resist a full committed attack! 

Savage Gear 4D Rattle Trout Shad Lure

In dull light and merky water this shad lure will certainly stand out. Increasing the chances of being followed.

The new action camera by DJI


I was undecided wether to purchase the GO-PRO or the DJI Osmo Action 4K camera. As I already trust the DJI product range. I decided on the DJI Osmo Action camera.

So this week I took the plunge and convinced my conscience and the wallet that it would be a worthwhile purchase.

Also to work alongside my ever faithful Osmo Pocket will provide better video angles and footage.

I have only been using this compact action camera for a week and I’m blown away with its quality and features. I will be looking forward to posting new videos and photos into this blog with this camera.

MY THOUGHTS AFTER A WEEK

The dual screen is a brilliant idea. Shooting Rock steady quality videos in 4K. The voice automated feature is an excellent tool.


GO-PRO or Osmo Action ??

What do you prefer? I would love to read your comments and reviews on both cameras

My Camera and Photography Gear

An obsession with DJI camera equipment

Don’t forget to like and leave a comment below as I would like to hear what camera equipment your using and you’re recommendations.


DJI Mavic Mini

This must be my most favourite item that I take in my camera bag. I had been after a drone for a couple of years, God know’s how many hours I had spent watching drone videos and reading reviews. The cost and also never flown a drone before kept holding me back from buying one. Then DJI released the Mavic Mini. A low cost drone beginners. Its so easy to use and fly and the 4K video and pictures are brilliant.

I strongly recommend

If your thinking about buying a Mavic Mini or any other drone. I suggest you buy a combo pack.The DJI combo kit comes with extra batteries and charger, so you can fly longer. Also a rigid case and very importantly propeller guards for when you hit a tree!

 

Mavic Mini Accessories

Ulanzi Drone landing pad

I never thought i would need a drone landing pad for the Mavic Mini. I soon learnt its a ‘must have’ . As it helped with landing and stopped the dust from getting into the drone.

Drone ND filters by Freewell

For improving shots in bright conditions and removing glare these filters from Freewell are excellent.


Portable Camera Tripod

I use the portable travel camera tripod from K & F Concept. A decent light weight tripod which doesn’t break the bank.


DJI Osmo Pocket

The Osmo pocket camera comes with me everywhere and is a great addition to my camera and photography gear as its small, light weight and ‘Yes’ it does fit in your pocket like the name suggests. Has a three axis gimble, object tracking and shoots video upto 4k and so much more.The Osmo pocket camera comes with me everywhere as its small, light weight and ‘Yes’ it does fit in your pocket like the name suggests. Has a three axis gimble, object tracking and shoots video upto 4k and so much more.

So easy to use as a point and shoot camera, action camera or just mounted on the tripod.

It can also be attached to a mobile phone. Giving you a larger screen and even more options.

To get the full benefits of this camera and unlock its potential, I purchased the DJI Osmo expansion kit. I recommend you buy this kit if you either have or you’re thinking about buying one.

Carp fishing on Manor lake Tingrith

A slow afternoons Carp fishing

Having some spare time last Saturday afternoon I thought I would throw my travel fishing gear into the back of the old car and spend a few hours Carp fishing.

So I decided to drive out to one of the Vauxhall club fishing lakes, located near the village of Tingrith.

Which I had fished many times over the years and caught some lovely common and mirror carp.

Having kept away from fishing at the Manor lake for a couple of weeks as I heard a lot of fish (silvers and carp) had died due to the recent weather. Due to a bad thunder storm then a week of high temperatures. Which had caused the oxygen levels to drop in the water and caused an increased Algae growth.

Also going fishing in the hot afternoon sun and between when fish normally feed. I wasn’t expecting too much.

Though if you caught fish all the time it would be called ‘Catching’ and not ‘Fishing’.

As usual the lake did not disappoint as a few lovely carp and even a couple of bream were netted in about four hours.
