Hi Paul, please find enclosed a photo of my grandson, Calum Ennis, with a 21lb. pike caught on November 5th 2012 at a lake in Co. Monaghan. Calum has just turned 7 and was trying out a new rod and reel which he got as a birthday present; nice way to christen it! the lake was just outside Monaghan town and the fish took a legered smelt deadbait in the afternoon. We weighed the fish at 21 lb. but didn’t measure it. Calum had one other run but the fish got off while I only managed a small 2lb 4oz pike, also on smelt. We fished about 5 hrs.
Regards, Paddy Ennis.
