Pallas lake Pike Angling Club in Co Offaly held a Pike Competition on the 21/10/18.

The competition was attended by 10 senior members and one junior. Unfortunately, numbers were low on this occasion at it clashed with other club competitions around the country. The morning started with it being mild and showers of drizzle. As with every pike fishing competition on this midland gem, anglers had high hope, as this is the sort of venue where anything could happen.

Unfortunately, the lake didn’t fish as well as it had in previous competitions.  The lake was still very low from our lovely summer and the bones of the lake were exposed for all to see. The members fished very hard over the course for the 6 hours competition only 7 fish were caught and safely returned to the lake
