Great fishing for Newbridge and District Pike Anglers at the weekend


Brendan Jarvis reports on 2 competitions the Newbridge and District Pike Anglers fished over the weekend…

Well what a weekend our members had. We had 2 Competitions on Saturday 9.30 to 5pm and on Sunday we fished 7am to 4pm. The weather was very different to our recent mild mornings we had temperatures of minus 2 degrees on both mornings but as the day went on temperatures were on the rise which helped the fishing. There was plenty of big bags on both days, we had over 220 pike caught and released over the weekend 4 into low doubles so great result. It was great getting out into the fresh air and enjoying what we love and it was nice to get away for a couple of days.

Some members chose to stay in some local b&bs and some of our lads bivyed up for the night. We had a great night with some great laughs. I would like to thank all the members who made the trip and well done to all the winners over the 2 days, also we had 2 members who broke their PBs over the weekend so well done to Sinead Winder and Danny Mc Evoy.

The full results are as follows:

Day 1 Davey Ward cup winner 2020 is

  • 1st Brendan Jervis 10lb 04oz hf 33lb 15oz bag
  • 2nd Dave Murphy 5lb 1oz hf 51lb 0oz bag
  • 3rd Kevin Foley 9lb 14oz hf 37lb 03oz bag

In total 95 fish caught on day 1

  • 2nd Kevin Foley 9lb 2oz hf 61lb 02oz bag
  • 3rd Brendan Jervis 6lb 12oz hf 50lb 06oz bag

In total 122 fish caught on day 2

Also we finished our 3rd quarter of the mini league and again came down to ozs with 2nd and 3rd place results are as follows

  • 1st Kevin Foley 26lb 01oz
  • 2nd Eugene Mc Cabe 23lb 4oz

Well done lads. Also big thank you to Dave Mc Bride from Southside angling for giving us a prize for 2nd heaviest fish on the Saturday Comp so winner was Ian Murphy

Again a big thank you to all the members who made the trip and hope to see you all on the bank next month.
