Weekly update

Pike 104cm for French anglers in Longford

October 31st, 2017 | by

Kevin Lyons of Melview Lodge in Longford reports on that deadbait made the difference for a group of French anglers…

Pascal and friends Dominique, Alain and Gerard from France were once again over for their annual Pike fishing holiday to Melview Fishing Lodge. With the high water levels it was always going to be hard going.

However despite the weather conditions they fished on and managed some great fish during their weeks stay, they used both dead bait Roach and lures but it was the dead baits that proved to be the best choice of the week producing fish up to 104 cm. Great week and good company, thanks guys hope to see you next year.
