Pike in Fermanagh was the weekends task for Rookie Bass Angler Steven Neely .  Surrounded by frosty banks, he fishes the Erne and reports:


To be honest pike have never been my strong point but the last few weeks have thrown up some pretty decent sport – I have nailed most of them when I have been using my perch set up – awesome sport.

Bigger shads have been working like the Illex Ammonite, Daiwa Duckfin, ZMan PaddlerZ, Molix RA Shad etc All have been rigged weedless style.

My pike nailed the perch lures mentioned above …. Hitting 7+ lb pike on perch kit is just bonkers …. love it!

Will be interesting to see how this weather goes and if when the water levels drop our sport will pick up. Still waiting for the sea to calm a little before getting back into the salt and targeting some large wrasse.
