I saw this on Southampton west quay, scores of immature bass being carted away in buckets. Our local lakes now have signs up with cartoon pics of a stick man with a fish under his arm, a carp in a frying pan etc all with big red lines through them. One local water lost quite a few carp. Club’s on top of it now.Lovely specimens
The rivers and lakes in my region have been decimated by over Fishing and our Eastern European people who like at the coast, "Catch and Keep" policy, no matter how small.
These pike had a regular diet of stocked trout! When they get to these sizes they regulate pike numbers by eating the jacks as well.Stunning looking fish.
In your case Joe it would have been a truly Tree mendous IRISH Pike.Well worth a mention.
