Despite the high water conditions over recent weeks Pauric McGearty has been out trying his luck in the Cavan area and had some good catches into double figures on a few occasions. There were as usual a few tough days but it’s always worth it when you land a beauty like the one pictured below. Pauric has a new venture with guiding and boat hire in the Cavan area and has been receiving a good number of enquiries from anglers looking for a good day out pike fishing. If you are looking for some nice pike fishing why not get in touch with Pauric for that day out that you have been promising yourself!

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. In addition to guiding services Pauric has a number of boats with outboard motors for hire. His boats include Redfin 5700’s which are equipped with oars, life jackets, anchor and a fish finder. 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. The lakes in the area also produce some very big trout. For full details and terms and conditions of hire please contact Pauric at
