TJ, of TJ’s angling, finished last month with some good pike to 114cm and although May has not been ideal for angling so far he has managed to get his clients on some decent fishing so far.
Paul Bourke, Irish Fishing Tours, also finished the month in some style. One of his last trips in April finished with 20 pike to 12kgs for one angler and another 13 pike to over 1m for the second man in the boat.
At the weekend Cedric Charpentier, Peche Irlande Passion, was out with clients and they had some beautiful pike on a variety of realistic soft plastic lures. Like the other guides on the lake Cedric finished April with some good fish to 1m and over, with the quality catches continuing in the early part of May.
