John and his friend James who are regulars to Melview Fishing Lodge in Longford were up once again for a few days Pike fishing with host Kevin. John and James visit Kevin several times a year for both coarse and Pike fishing making them no strangers to the waters around Longford. The most productive method for them was dead bait fishing, using various dead baits they managed to catch Pike to just over the meter along with plenty of fish in the 90 cm mark.

John gets off the mark.

Kevin said, ‘I had the pleasure of their company and the chance to fish with them for a day during their visit and it was a great day had by all with plenty of fun and laughter going on which took our minds off the cold weather conditions. Thanks for a great time guys, see you again soon.’
