After watching and being inspired slightly by The Great Rod Race over the last few days i have decided to have my own little mission. Mine is to catch as many different species as i can from 3 different types of water, lake, river, canal. After deciding that im having another winter after Pike/Zander as well as carp i thought i would widen my fishing skills a bit. I reckon i can do 5 different species by the end of March from each type of water. While doing this i want to fish as many different venues as possible and try and catch catch a my target size of each species along the way. I want to use this thread to help with each part and keep everyone updated with jow im doing with it. ;)
Target sizes:
2lb Perch, 1lb Roach, 5lb Bream, 7lb Tench, 20lb Carp, 10lb Pike, 5lb Zander, 3lb Chub
Im starting with Perch on the canal. I know a stretch that holds a few good sized fish but also holds Roach, Rudd, gudgeon and a few Bream. I know Perch love lobworms but i just need to know the best way to present them and if its better legered or float fished. Or please tell me if you think that i am going about this the wrong way?
The stretch of the canal is also close to a small river and a day ticket lake that also hold Perch so could get the first species done in the first days fishing. :D
Anyone got any experience fishing for canal Perch they can share to help me out a bit. <!-- s:?: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_question.gif" alt=":?:" title="Question" /><!-- s:?: -->

Float fished lobworm not too small and feed a mixture of casters and lobworms chopped up together that should do the job :D

As for the 7lb tench i think you are asking alot of yourself for that one a fish of that size would be a good target for the summer let alone the winter :(

But the best of luck i`m sure you will have a great time trying for all of your targets keep us informed :D

Fishing red maggot and worm on a size 20 hook and float fishing failed to catch me anything not even a bite this afternoon. <!-- s:cry: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_cry.gif" alt=":cry:" title="Crying or Very Sad" /><!-- s:cry: --> But on the plus side landed this 4lb Pike on a Roach deadbait. :D

Only fished 2pm until 4.45 so cant complain. Water very clear and only a couple of boats came through and it was just after these that i caught the Pike.

So thats Pike caught out a canal off the list. ;)
Next week if its not flooding im heading to a river to see what i can land if anything....

Nice Pike Dean. Is the first one from Napton Resse? It looks very familiar.

Biggest Pike i have ever seen was my sisters ex when fisahing with him years ago and he landed a 16lber. Absolute monster and reckon its head was nearly as big as mine
