Milltown Lake in Co. Monaghan may be better know by some as a rainbow trout fishery, but from the end of September, when the trout fishing is closed, the pike fishing get going…

Sunday saw one of the lake’s annual pike competitions take place.  Fish were hard to get and dead baiting was the most productive method.

1st place Mr Micheal O Connor , 2nd to Pat Clarke and 3rd  to Pat Lee. Michael had a great day that could have been much better. Apart from the fish he landed Michael dropped another 5 pike.
