O’Casey’s Pike Club held their 2nd heat of the 2022 league last weekend on a lake in Co. Monaghan. The recent heavy rainfall meant that water levels were high and this affected the catch rate with only 14 fish landed.

Results were as follows:

  • 1st Paul Reynolds 14lb 13oz (4 fish)
  • 2nd Kornelijus Toks 11lb 1oz (2 fish)
  • 3rd Brendan O’Reilly 8lb 13oz (2 fish)

Darragh Maguire had the heaviest pike of the day with an 8lb 7oz fish.

Their next qualifier will be held on Sunday, March 6th. The Drop Inn, Killann (on the main Bailieborough to Shercock Road) will be the meeting point between 09.30 and 10.30. Competitors will be fishing two lakes. Non-members are welcome to fish O’Casey’s events – the small fee of €10 on the day covers day-membership enabling non-club members to get involved.
