Lough Derg

Paul Burke and Danny Tiernan from Irishfishingtours.com had an excellent days fishing on Lough Derg Sunday 11th November with Willie Cooney, Nenagh. They caught 10 pike up to 22lbs, a personal best for Willie, fishing Rapala’s fast. The catch included fish of 15lbs, 13lbs and 10lbs.
On Friday 23rd November Danny Tiernan brought Eric Ezola from Miami on his first pike fishing expedition on Irish waters and did’nt disappoint, with 3 pike, best fish weighing in at 16lbs and again all fish were caught on Rapala’s. Eric was delighted with his first attempt and hopes to come back again to sample the excellent fishing on offer on Lough Derg.
