Ken O’Neill reports on pike angling on Lough Derg

Pike angling is slow enough on the lake this week.  However, four tourist angling boats reported to have caught 166 Pike with one Pike measuring 1.30 m and another weighing 11 kg.  One Pike angler caught a 9 lb Salmon while trolling down from Killaloe.  The Salmon was caught, photographed and returned safely to the lake afterwards.

A German Tourist angler looks in disbelief when he caught this wild 75 cm Salmon while Jerk Baiting for Pike down deep.
