    Depends if you want quantity or quality. If you want plenty of fish but most being jacks loch ken. Quality look at getting on some of the rivers. Ure, swale but bank fishing. Like I say depending what your wanting and how far you want to travel.

    I fish both the Swale and Tees in winter for pike, usually between December and March (Though last year i got waylaid by chub fishing!). On the lower Tees, i would say it pays to keep an eye on match reports and the like, to try and locate the bream shoals. I keep hearing about the 60's doing well at Bowesfield.....

    Most of my piking is done on the middle Tees, with all my fishing done within 5 feet of the nearside bank. I tend to travel light, dropping a deadbait into any likely looking hole or under nearside trees etc. I spend no longer than 15 mins in each swim - i've found if you are going to get a bite, it happens pretty quickly - they dont mess about. If you have the patience to use a float, please do because it's an exceptional way of pike fishing. Out of the blue your float will lie flat as the pike picks up the bait, followed by a couple of bobs and then it usually sails away. You need to hit them pretty quickly, dont mess about leaving them run for ages.

    There's lads on here who do exceptionally well on the Tees with a good number of 20's - not me unfortunately, but it's good fun and you can usually expect to catch a fish using the above tactics.

    Depends on where you want to travel, IMO the best places are the drains near driffield. Local i'd go on the Tees or scaling dam.

    Scaling dam?? I know there are like in there but are many coming out, I know of a 17 getting caught years ago but was killed. I had two jacks again years back but never heard of anything really coming out.

    Castle Howard was only if you were stopping on camp site. Did do so good fish but thats before it was ruined. Still chance of a 20 in there.
    Loch Ken fish fight harder than any other pike I have caught, have a video somewhere of a 15lb tail walking, started filming as the float started to go. But now its packed with Jack's
