Glore Anglers fish first competition on the year

Last Sunday January 14th Glore Anglers hosted their first pike competition of the 2018 season. It was an 11am start and we finished at 3.30pm with a half time weigh-in at 1pm. Conditions at the start of the competition were chilly and there was a good breeze blowing across this North Westmeath Lake just outside Castlepollard. A few regular Glore anglers were missing as the Flu Bug caught up with them, but those who competed had a nice day.

A total of 8 pike were weighed in, nothing huge but still a very good result on the day. Eddie and Gavin Hughes were competition Stuart’s, and Jennifer Maples topped the day with a pike of 3lbs 15oz.
