The Ballinasloe two day pike competition took place on the 24th and 25th of September.

This competition was a heaviest bag competition, much like a fed competition, there was prizes for heaviest fish.

The Carlton Shearwater Hotel was the venue for the draw and the Prize giving.  The first day was fished on a very high River Suck and the second day was fished on the River Shannon at Shannonbridge.

The results were as follows:

1st Sean Markey 13 pike for 46 lbs 12 ozs
2nd Rory McAllorum 10 pike for 32 lbs
3rd Godfrey Donohue 12 pike for 31 lbs 6 ozs

Heaviest fish was caught by Joey Bonnie 15 lbs 12 ozs

the organisers want to thank all of the anglers that turned out to fish, the conditions were very tough, the high water didn’t help, but all that aside it was a very enjoyable weekend, roll on next year.

The dates for next year are the 21st 22nd & 23rd of September 2012
