Gerard Smyth of Border Fishing Guides had an absolute belter of a pike this weekend from a Monaghan venue…

On Friday I was out on a quick lure session as only had a few hours  to spare. I tried one of my usual marks and turned up nothing. Headed off to a new mark  and on the drift started lure bashing. This beautiful lady  turned up and put a bend on the rod.

39lb 12oz pike
Gerard’s huge pike registered 39lb 12oz on his scales

It was a great  fight but I controlled her well and eventually put her in the net. I am absolutely delighted to bits  with her. This is a P.B. that will take some beating  but I’ll  definitely  give it a go!
