Tomi Kurman from the Corrib Predator Team reports that an Irish “summer” at least has one benefit – excellent summer pike angling. Over recent weeks Tomi and fellow guide Jack Gorny have enjoyed great sport with their clients. Throughout  July and the first week of August they enjoyed some excellent pike fishing with many great fish caught- in July alone they caught over 30 pike exceeding 20lbs and over the magic metre mark.
Tomi says “We had the pleasure to guide Spanish guest Manuel Lopez over 3 great days. On the first day Manuel landed 4 fish over 20lbs in the space of a couple of hours, and lost one of similar size. He also missed 2 just at the surface close to the boat. In total we managed to catch 5 fish over 20lbs with the best just over 25lbs, two high doubles and a good few smaller pike. Most fish were caught in shallow water on jerkbaits and fly. Manuel smashed his previous PB the first day with a great pike of 113cm!  He remarked that Irish pike fight as hard as catfish- and he knows what he’s talking about. He’s from Spain  – the home of big catfish!
