Pauric McGearty was in contact with us today to let us now about his new guiding and boat hire business on Carafin Lough and Lough Oughter in Co Cavan. Pauric is located on the shore of Carafin Lake and took some time out recently to fish with Gerard Smith. It took the lads a bit of time to realise that the dead baits were not working so they changed over to lures and managed to boat 18 good pike to 20.5lbs. The fish were all in great condition and gave a really good account of themselves, very strong hard fighting fish according to Pauric.

To make a booking

Angling guide Pauric McGearty is based on the shores of Carafin Lough which gives fishermen access to this and a host of other lakes including the beautiful Lough Oughter in Co Cavan.

Electric trolling motors are also available for hire and Pauric has a range of fishing tackle for hire that is suitable for all anglers of all levels. So all you have to do is arrive, get your gear on and get fishing. This is a fantastic pike fishing area with many big fish well over 20lb caught each year.
