Mike Murray of Murray’s Angling Services  reports on the pike fishing around Portumna recently…

Pike fishing has been great with 2 Belgian anglers Landing over 100 Pike fishing the Shannon and Lough Derg around Portumna.

Two Italian guests of mine Dr Marco Pivas and his friend Yuri Baloo also had a great week landing around 50 pike mostly under 10lbs but also had several fish measuring over a metre despite some difficult weather conditions.

They also managed to take a great photo of this White Tailed Eagle flying over head. The birds are nesting on Church Island Portumna Bay and boat anglers are asked to keep at least 200m away from the island until the chicks have fledged.
