I'd be delighted to catch that.............it would have to be on a lure though!
September the Real Eels should appear as far as i know.
It would be interesting to know if pike feed on Eels to any degree, more or less than other species? Pike certainly like eel type lures.

Dave. (or anyone else)
I only lure fish for pike, i do fish a lot at night and like yourself i go regardless of conditions etc. If i can grab a few hours i do.
But it is noticeable that the larger pike are often caught on a full moon, not always at night time, sometimes during daylight with the full moon that night or the night before.
I've never looked into it at depth, it's just a generalisation, but i do try to get an extra few hours in over the full moon period.
I've noticed similar from other pike anglers too, my Uncle bait fishes for pike in the Winter, he caught a 31lb pike in daylight with the full moon that night. His 8 year old grandson caught the same pike a month later, again on the full moon???
Have you ever noticed that the bigger eels are caught on the full moon?
