HUXLNG OF PIKE. A particular method for the catching of this sort of fish. For this use, take as large bladders as can be got; blow them up, and tie them close and strong; then at the mouth of each tie a line, longer or shorter according to the depth of water; at the end of each line fasten an armed hook artificially baited, and put them into the water, with the advantage of the wind, that they may gently move up and down the pond. Now, when one master pike has struck himself, it is a most pleasing diversion to see him bounce about in the water with a bladder. When you see him almost spent, take him up. See Pike.
