Sylvian Vivarelli, Baudry Michel, Bour Hervé and Étienne Denoyer from Vesoul, France enjoyed a good weeks Pike fishing when they stayed with Kevin and Jane Lyons at Melview Lodge in Longford. With only small Pike to 14 lb showing for the first couple of days the lads were wondering when the big one’s would show, Kevin said I showed them a few spots and suggested a change in tactics.  Wobbling dead baits done the trick and produced some cracking Pike to over 27 lb, log in next week for the full story.  Etienne caught the biggest pike of 27 lb. 9 oz and wins our Catch of the Week.

Étienne Denoyer, from Vesoul, France with his 27 lb. 9 oz Pike is our Catch of the Week

Pike fishing has been great over the past weeks producing some great Pike for visitors to Melview Lodge, however the change in the weather and rising water levels is sure to change things in the coming week.
