Chew Valley reservoir does it again with a 42 pound 8 ounce northern pike from England. This is Brian Ingram's second pike over the 40 pound barrier, his first monster was caught at the famous Llandegfedd reservoir, which weighed at an incredible 43 pounds 2 ounces. There must be something to Ingram's method, he said it entails staying in one particular spot for the morning and if nothing really happens, move every hour in the afternoon. The 42 pound monster pike was caught during the opening week of the February pike trials held at the prolific Somerset venue. Other 30 pound pike were caught from the venue during the five day trial, including a 39 pounder, two 38 pound pike, a 37 pound pike and four over 36 pounds. If I ever take a vacation to Somerset England, well this is one body of water I'll have to fish.
