When considering previous January weather conditions I am sure that most anglers would gladly take what was on offer today Friday 4th January 2013 on Lough Ramor in Virginia, Co Cavan.  Up to sixteen anglers pitted their skills against the wily pike and coarse fish during the course of the day. A mild day for January with temperatures registering 10 to 11 degrees but the light NW breeze upped the chill factor considerably. Water levels were well up in the lake but the water is suprisingly clear. The coarse angling concentrated mostly on the boat pond which is still crammed with quality fish. Anglers were kept busy all day catching and releasing quality hybrids and roach and a number of very sizable perch have also been taken in recent days. Visiting fom Dublin were Gerry Walsh and his son Stephen who were spending some quality time fishing together, prior to Stephen heading back to Australia in a few days. The lads had excellent sport and Gerry had 18 fish including some quality hybrids in one busy one and a quarter hour period. However, not to be outdone Stephen had the best fish of the day a nice 1.5lb hybrid. Maggot and sweetcorn produced results to all float methods today Friday 4th Jan 2013.
