Lough Derg guide lands 126cm pike
January 27th, 2017 | by Myles Kelly
On cold, crisp January morning Pierre Montjarret launched his boat on the calm waters of Lough Derg, much as he had done hundreds of times before in the last number of years. He headed off across the lake to try some his favourite spots. Places he knew would fish well given the day’s conditions.
In the end he exceeded all his expectations with what he reports to be his own PB a seriously big pike of 126cm. After a photo to record the moment this fish was carefully revived in the lakes chilly waters and she swam off non the worse for the wear.
Pierre Monjarret moved to Ireland in 2007 to pursue his dream as a guide. It is now many years since he cast his first line on Lough Derg. Throughout that time his passion for this lake has never faded, always something new to learn, new techniques to develop and challenges that remind you why you love catching big fish!
