Pike anglers tackling the Lough Ree International Pike Festival from Coosan point could be sharing a massive €20,000 cash prize fund!

Every cent received in entry fees during the three-day boat angling event. Last April 30 anglers shared a daily and overall prize more than €18,000 and it looks likely that there will be even more talented anglers afloat on the prolific lough this year.

And of course we have the World Cup, which goes to the boat with the longest total length of pike over all three days by counting one fish each day. There will be a trophy for each angler in the boat and they will win back their entry fees too.

We have reduced the entry fees – this year it costs €100 for three days on April 18, 19 and 20.

The closing date for entries is Tuesday April 10.

Mullingar pike specialist Mick Flanagan made the prize list – but didn’t beat the winning 106cm fish bagged by Frenchman Domnic Potoczy.
