Mostly jacks at final National Pike Championships qualifier

March 8th, 2017 | by

John Chambers of the Irish Federation of Pike Angling Clubs reports on the last qualifier of the 2016/17 National Pike Championships – the Stewards Qualifier. It was fished over the weekend on a small County Cavan lake that usually produces 20, 30 and 40 lb bags. However, over in days leading up to the competition there had been a lot of rain and water levels were up several feet. This usually puts pike off and Sunday was no exception. It was very hard going with only small numbers jacks on the feed.

Results:

  • 1. Paul Mc Carthy 7 fish 14-10lb
  • 2. Eddie Mc Guirk 5 fish 13-08lb
  • 3. Mickey Mc Kenna 4 fish 9-08lb
  • 4. Pat Dunphy 3fish 9-03lb
  • 5. Paddy Mc Kenna 2 fish 5-11lb
  • 6. Ibar Condron 2 fish 5-09lb
  • 7. Pat Gorman 2 fish 4-13lb
