Do I need a bite alarm for pike deadbaiting?

While it's not strictly necessary, a bite alarm can be very beneficial for pike deadbaiting. It provides an audible and sometimes visual indication of a bite, allowing the angler to respond quickly, especially in situations where they might not be constantly watching their rods.

What is a pike drop off indicator?

A pike drop off indicator is a type of bite detection system used in pike fishing. It attaches to the line and provides a visual indication, typically dropping off or moving when a pike takes the bait. This is especially useful in detecting "drop back" bites where the pike moves towards the angler after taking the bait. Early bite indication helps avoid deep hooking pike!

Are chain drop off indicators any good for pike fishing?

Yes, chain drop off indicators can be effective for pike fishing. They provide a clear visual indication of a bite and are especially useful for detecting subtle movements. This style of indicator is less common when fishing in exposed windy conditions - where a fixed arm indicator would be less prone to false alarms.

What is a drop back bite mean when pike fishing?

A drop back bite in pike fishing refers to when a pike takes the bait and moves towards the angler, causing the line to go slack. This can be challenging to detect without the right equipment, like drop off indicators, as traditional bite indications might not show this movement. Some drop back indicators include a weight that allows the indicator to drop freely if/when the line goes slack.

What are the common features of a pike bite alarm?

Common features of a pike bite alarm include an audible alert tone, sensitivity adjustments a visual indicator (often LED lights) and sometimes a wireless connection to a remote receiver. They are designed to provide immediate feedback when a fish takes the bait, ensuring the angler can react in a timely manner.

Do bite alarms need batteries?

Yes, most bite alarms operate using batteries. Depending on the model and features, they might use standard AA or AAA batteries, coin batteries, or rechargeable batteries. It's always a good idea to carry spare batteries when fishing, especially on longer sessions.
