Dutch visitors enjoy nice pike fishing in Longford

June 27th, 2017 | by

Dutch anglers Recardo, Winfred, Barry, Tony, Eddy, Alwin and Johan were here at Melview Fishing Lodge for their annual pike fishing trip – six pike anglers and one coarse angler Johan ( see coarse report). According to Kevin, things were a little slower compared to previous due to the bright sunny and hot conditions. The fish caught were mainly around the 70cm / 80cm along with a couple of 90cm fish, the biggest fish of the week went to Tony measuring 106cm but the Pike master award they fish for went to Barry. Great fun and company guys, hope to see you in Ireland again soon.
