Angling guide Pierre Monjarret is reporting some top class pike fishing on Lough Derg in recent days. Last Wednesday Pierre was out on Lough Derg to explore a new area. It was not long before he was sure he had found a sport worth coming back to. The most productive lure on the day was  a X Buster natual perch.

Prospecting in a new area yielded good results…

Over the weekend the good fishing continued with some fine pike to over 100cm caught on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Matthieu Julian Had some beautiful pike on Sunday
2 good pike caught on Saturday including the first pike ever for Sebatien. Not a bad pike to start off with!

On Friday Bruno Presti and Stefan Trumstedt fished with Pierre.  Between them they had 4 over 90cm and 2 over 1m.

Pierre – Fish on Friday…

Pierre Monjarret moved to Ireland in 2007 to pursue his dream as a guide and began working with Jean-Louis Bigot ( on the glorious Lough Derg. It is now 7 years since he cast his first line on Lough Derg. Throughout that time his passion for this lake has never faded, always something new to learn, new techniques to develop and challenges that remind you why you love catching big fish!
