Is it ok to retain pike in a sack??? I have sacked up many many carp over the years and never had a problem. I recognise pike are somewhat more delicate creatures than carp. Anyone have any thoughts???

If it's proper carp sack and the Pike are only in it for a short time I don't see a problem as it's been done at most Pike competitions Wink

Errr .... why put it in a sack at all?

Putting it back immediately is better for the pike, and therefore the logical thing to do.

Better in a sack and in the water than laying on a stony bank while a camera or weighing scales are got ready.
