Mick Flanagan on the recent rumors of a Derravaragh 30lber -whether true or not he had one approaching the magical mark himself…

Some of Ireland’s top predator anglers are checking out Lough Derravaragh, as some huge pike pictured are being highlighted on social media. Reports of pike pushing the magical 30lbs have pike anglers in a frenzy, and I met some of these lads recently on Derravaragh. They told me its hard going and you might only get a few takes but the size and the condition of the pike is breathtaking.

A high 20 for Mick
A high 20 for Mick – well worth waiting for!

I had one run last Saturday and the fish was just few pounds short of 30lb. The pic, kindly taken by James Norton can be viewed on www.facebook.com/midlandangling. Trolling,  at times with super sized lures, or simply drifting with dead baits are working best.
