The mild December weather provided an opportunity for myself and Josie Mahon to try a few casts for a Lough Ramor pike today. A moderate south westerly wind put a small wave on the lower end of the lake but the northern end of the lake was quite sheltered and conditions were perfect in the late evening as the breeze subsided even further. Even the rain held off. Although no big fish made an appearance today some jacks were active and we had a couple of fish with a couple of misses and chases. Two anglers were fishing from the pier in Virginia but no fish were taken. Fish were taken on float drifted dead baits and lures, with a yellow and green spoon type bait attracting most attention from the jacks. If the mild weather continues the fish are sure to be more active at some stage over the coming days. I am sure that some pikers are already planning their St Stephens Day outing!! Tight Lines to All!!
