27 January: Pike are feeding well on Lough Allua. On my 1st guided tour of the year my French guest caught 6 pike. Three of them just under the meter mark – measuring 95, 92 and 90 cm.

A good result

Catches were evenly spread between dead bait , trolling and twitching .

…and more followed

All pike were met at 15 to 18ft . and another few were lost…

22 January: Not a bad start – 1st pike of the year weighed 20 lbs and measured 102 cm. This was our 1st day piking in 2015. We caught 4 pike in all – the biggest one fell for a trolled Castaic softbait .

Sigi Latour with their first of the year – at over 1m it was the perfect start to pike fishing 2015 at Tir na Spideoga

The water temperature on Lough Allua was between 2 and 3 degrees – still the pike were feeding reasonably well.
