Jean-Louis Bigot from pecheirlande has been in contact to let us know that two of his clients had some nice catches recently on Lough Derg. Despite the tough fishing, father and son, Michel and Claude Van de Casteele from France recorded a number of pike the best of which was just short of the magic metre at 98cm. This great fish was taken on a roach like soft bait.
Not long after, the duo managed to boat a beautiful wild brown trout of circa 60cm which took a float fished smelt. Fishing had been fairly tough due to changeable water and air temperatures and a cold breeze but despite all the challenges Michel and Claude were delighted with these two magnificent fish. The trout was estimated to be around 7lbs and was released safely back to the water after a quick photo.
