27 October: Pike fishing on the Lough is starting to get back to normal after that wet and windy spell. I have been out today with my guest Michael Herpers and we caught a total of 5 decent pike – the biggest measured 96 cm.

Trolling in 5 meters of water I got caught on something that felt like or rock or tree. But the lake was 14 meters deep…

I surely lost a fish close to my PB after a few minutes.

Go fishing…

Tir na Spideoga Fishing Lodge is situated on the shores of Lough Allua, about 5km from Inchigeelagh Village, overlooking a narrow but long water system, also called the ‘ Inchigeelagh lakes’. Lough Allua ranks amongst the top pike fishing waters of Ireland, regularly producing pike of 20 and 30 lbs. and still it is one of the least known pike venues on the island .

A guided day on the lake for 2 anglers costs as little as €80 – plus €40 for the boat hire. No permit is required
