I had been watching loads of videos on YouTube of Mick Brown dead baiting for pike and felt really inspired to go out and try it for myself. I haven’t really done much pike fishing before having only started this year so I didn’t really know what to expect.

I had heard that there were a few decent sized pike being caught out of the Erewash Canal 5 minutes from my house at Greens Lock. So I thought I would start there after pre-baiting it for the previous 3 days.

As you will see in the video, it didn’t quite go to plan.

But ahh well, onwards and upwards.
