A 19lb 12oz pike from the River Shannon
On a slow day just one fish can make up for a lot, this 19lb pike certainly raised the spirits of Joey Bonnie and Stephen Farrelly

Joey Bonnie and fellow DPA club member, Stephen Farrelly were pike fishing the Shannon below Banagher on Wednesday the 14th. It was a very slow day with only the one pike caught. The fish took a ledgered mackerel fished close in. After a spirited battle with some nice tail walks she was successfully landed. She weighed 19lb 12oz. After a few snaps she went back without a fuss.
