Pauric McGearty from Carafin Lodge reports that the pike fishing on Lough Oughter and surrounding area has been producing some great pike fishing lately. The water has been in good condition and the pike very active. They seem to be following the shoals of coarse fish which are though to be on the brink of spawning. Pauric has reported plenty of good double figured fish and excellent numbers of fish caught and all on lures. Visiting clients from Ireland, all over Europe and further even further afield have been delighted with the fishing they have found.
