Big, long pike on Derg suggest spawning might not be over

May 4th, 2017 | by

Kevin Grimes was guiding for TJs Angling Centre on Sunday and the fishing was good…

Lough Derg continues to fish well for Pike. The photos below indicate that spawning has not finished.

A couple of very good fish; 110cm (post spawn) and 103cm (pre spawn),  were caught by French couple Nicholas and Steecy who were on their first fishing trip to Ireland.

On 27 April for Sylvain and Jerome Fabre from Toulouse had 5 pike to around 1m. Ted Rice from New Hampshire enjoyed a few hours on Lough Derg with TJ on 25th of April and was rewarded with his first pike and his first wild brownie, both fish caught on a spro pikefighter jointed, and both fish swam away happily. The day before NW winds put a nice chop on the lake making a welcome change from the calm mirror like quality of the previous few day’s. The fish seemed to like it and Trioux Damien and friend Mercier Jerome took full advantage boating 7 fish. The biggest was caught by Trioux at 106cm and just beat Mercier who had a fish of 105cm.
