Big bream not a thing of the past for old regulars at Melview Lodge

August 28th, 2017 | by

Angling Guide and guesthouse owner Kevin Lyons reports from Melview Lodge:

It was like a blast from the past for guest house owner Kevin Lyons of Melview Lodge when fishing buddies Mike Smithers and Kevin Kempster from the UK decided to re-visit Ireland for a fishing holiday,. Kevin said it was great to see them again as they have not fished together for around 10 years for one reason or another. Before this they had fished in Ireland for 20 years together and always had a great time of it, this time was no different…

It was straight into fishing mode for the three of us. This of course saw the important first step of cutting out and prebaiting the old venues we had fished years ago.

The first venue was looking great with plenty of big Roach feeding first and we were just waiting for the Bream to move in over the next day or so like they had done on previous years. But it was not to be, large Pike had moved into the swim to snack on the many Roach we had attracted to the area. We all had our fair share of Pike take’s, however we managed to catch some cracking Roach to around 1lb 8oz in that time using the feeder at 40 yards with various hook baits.

Due to bad weather reports we had to change our plans at the last moment and chose another venue for us.Then late that evening it was then off to venue number two for a good old prebait. The change of venue the rught decision as the weather we fished in was very close to madness but it paid off for us producing 215lb for Mike and Kevin and 96lb for myself.

Just like the old days, great catches and lot of laughs. Thanks lads, look forward to seeing you again soon.

All fish returned unharmed.
