Before you even think about casting out a lure/bait for Pike, you need to have the right unhooking equipment. This will consist of, an unhooking mat, long-nosed forceps, a strong pair of pliers, and some decent side cutters. All of which play an important part in unhooking pike, so please don’t go Pike fishing without them.
Going pike fishing without these items will almost certainly result in injured or dying fish. So please think carefully and check your kit before heading off for a days fishing.
All the above items are available at reasonable prices from your local tackle dealers.
