Damien Culliney of www.anglersparadise.ie had some friends over from the USA in search of Irish pike in the past week. Kimberly and Louis had never been fishing for pike before, so Damien decided that one of the many beautiful lakes in East Clare would be the perfect venue for them to break their duck.
They started off the day by casting lures into the shallows, where they had one or two half hearted jack attacks but no solid hook ups. After lunch Damien decided to move into deeper water and that’s when they started getting some better action.
The day finished up the with a few nice fish and was topped off with a fin perfect beauty of 107 cm and 20lb, which was a new PB for Louis. Not bad considering that this was his first Irish pike – he was understandably over the moon.
