Artur ‘Pike Seeker’ took some time out from his usual quarry to target some tench in the Cavan area recently and he sent us in this report:

My friend and I decided to spend a few days of fishing vacation at a lake venue last week. The choice fell on Lake Oughter in Co. Cavan as we wanted to catch tench, and we know there are a lot of tench on this lake. We threw out the groundbait, put the corn on the hook and waited for the first bites. Most of the bites were in the evening and again in the morning. We managed to catch a dozen beautiful healthy tench. The weather was good, the fish were fine it was a beautiful area. I recommend to everyone.
