Greg Latour of Tir na Spideog reports on the pike fishing on Lough Allua…
10 March: After 4 1/2 years a Dutch angler came back to improve on his lake pike PB of 20lb / 104 cm pug nose and he did!Today we caught an even bigger 105cm pike weighing 21lbs. We couldn’t have planned it any better. Tomorrow he booked me again for a guided tour on Lough Allua , so if everything goes to plan…
18 March: To be honest, not a lot of pike are being caught on Lough Allua on any given day at the moment. The pike are preparing for the spawning, but the ones coming to the boat are well worth a guided trip. Another 20lbs.+pike was caught by one of my Dutch clients at the weekend.
Richie’s pike was caught on a perch in 7 meters of water and my biggest pike of the day measuring 97cm fell for a hering in 8 meters of water.
