After a long absence of over a year Kevin Lyons from Melview Lodge reports on the pike fishing locally…

Kevin of Melview Fishing Lodge in Longford was out for a few hours Pike fishing with his mate Emmett, and what a good productive evening it was. Eleven fish from the boat and shore, which included 3 fish over the 100 cm. The largest pike measured in at 109 cm.

“We know not all days are like this but it just seemed to go to plan. Looking forward to the next one already.”

Kevin said it was perfect conditions and the fish were hungry from start to finish. They only fished for around 4 hrs 30 minutes.
