Fishing for Pike with big baits is becoming increasingly popular in France, and regular photos of big fish caught with this technique increase the interest of many anglers. As big bait fishing can be practised all year round and you're going to be casting "heavy" lures, you'll need perfectly adapted equipment first and foremost to prevent this fishing from being uncomfortable, and so be able to fish for long hours to find the coveted big fish. The rod plays an essential role in giving you pleasure on the water, and in building the stamina you'll need to reach your goal. If your rod-and-reel set weighs more than 600 grams and hits are rare, you'll soon put it down and move on to something less tiring. Start configuration

Matching blanks

Big bait includes bothlarge soft lures, tubes, swimbaits, glidebaits, large jerkaits and spinnerbaits. Fishing 'big bait' doesn't necessarily mean fishing heavy, but rather moving a large volume of water through the action of the lure. To fish comfortably, you need plenty of power, length and progressiveness.

- Power to cast big lures and fight fish weighing up to 10kg. Length to cast far and hook effectively. Progressiveness to keep fish on the hook and enjoy Pleasure even on smaller fish.

The same blank can be used for both 'hard' and 'soft' swimbaits, but to maintain good striking efficiency and limit stalling, we recommend progressive blanks for hard lures and more advanced blanks for soft lures.

  1. NFC SWB 806 IM :2m43, 30-100g Blank: This blank is particularly progressive, making it very pleasant to cast and to fight with. It can be pushed to 105g, or even 110g in exceptional cases. Ideal for fishing with lures such as the I-Slide 187, the Dunkle 7' or the Replicants 18cm.
  2. NFC BB 809-1 IM 2m43, 50-150g: Originally designed for backbouncing, this progressive blank is ideal for fishing with Balam 210, Dunkle 9', BBZ 8', Miuras Mouse and accepts a Replicant 23cm.
  3. NFC SWB 807 IM 'Slim swimbait: 2m43, 30-150g. Slightly faster than the BB809, this SWB 807 has become a major reference on the BigBait market. For those who want to master the fight from A to Z and to cast 80% of your Pike box, this blank is ideal.
  4. NFC SWB 809-1 IM :2m43, 60-220g: This SWB 809 has retained its old-fashioned design and provides a perfect blend of progressiveness and power. For casting the 193g 4D Trout 25cm, this blank is ideal.
  5. Rodbuilders' Republic PPS80XXH 2m43, 80-220g: An impressive value for money when fishing with Replicant 23, Balam 300 or Wolfcreek shad 30cm.
  6. NFC SWB 808-IM 'Slim swimbait: 2m43, 80-300g. Featuring the same (slim) design as the SWB 807, this blank is simply out of this world. With its light weight of 128g, it is capable of casting a 55gr paddle shad or a 300gr big Trout (occasionally without forcing). It has a phenomenal reserve of power to stop any large Pike or Catfish. Its sensitivity, resonance and casting distance performance work wonders in large trophy fish environments such as Alpine lakes. A blank that will change you from anything you've ever known.
  7. NFC SWB/MUXH 809-1 IM 2m43, 170-450g: Blank for Big Bait professionals who regularly throw the 30cm 4D Trout or the 35cm Giant Replicant Wobble (443g).
  8. NFC 16Oz+ 2m43, 250-700g : This exceptional blank can be used to cast the 4DTrout Savage Gear 40cm (685g), the Eastfield Viper 40cm (595g) or even the Line Thru Pike 48cm 820g... This 174g blank is incredibly light for the power it delivers.

Our recommended handles

When fishing for Pike with fairly heavy lures, we prefer theCastingthe spinning reel. This makes for more accurate casts, cushions the lure on impact, gives you a lighter reel for greater power and a better wrist position. It's up to you to adapt the length behind the reel seat to your fishing style (shore, kayak, float tube, boat) and desired lever arm. A standard handle length corresponds to a trigger between 40 and 45cm.

Compatible guides

For this practice, we are once again opting for an Assembly inspiral casting. This rotating Brazilian Assembly prevents the braid from touching the blank and means fewer rings on the blank, saving weight. We offer 3Guide packs Fuji of different finishes, corresponding to different budgets and frequencies of use. The first segment of the range is occupied by GuideAlconite ceramics and Inox frameworksThey offer excellent value for money and are ideal for occasional use. The frame of these Guides is made of Inox with an anti-corrosion coating. The Alconite ceramic provides good glide and a high heat dissipation rate for the braid, but take care not to spool dry fly braid onto these guides. The second level of the range is occupied by Guide with armature.Inox and SIC ceramics. In this Guide range, the frame is still made of coated stainless steel, but the ceramic is made of Fuji SIC, which offers better glide and greater resistance. Finally, the top-of-the-range Fuji range is represented by Guide rings inTitanium-Torzite. The Titanium frame is much lighter and, above all, totally insensitive to corrosion. The ceramic is made of Torzite, another Fuji proprietary material that enables the braid to glide perfectly over the ceramic. This ultra-high-performance ceramic requires less material, enabling the use of smaller tunnel guides. Less weight = greater sensitivity and performance.
