Yuon’s Pike on Dead bait


French anglers Patrice, Yuon and Jean-Francois from France were over for a week of Pike fishing and decided to stay with Jane and I at Melview Fishing Lodge in Longford. The guys used both lures and dead baits and found both productive. However the better fish did seem to prefer dead baits. The guys did well considering the weather on a couple of the days and also the high water levels.

Good fun and great company, thanks guys and hope to see you all again next year.
