The Newbridge District Pike Anglers held their latest competition on a system of 4 small lakes and interconnecting rivers last weekend. Hitting the banks for an early start at 8.30 AM, some aimed at bagging up the numbers on the rivers, while others opted to go for bigger fish on the lakes.

One for the river anglers…

The river fishing was hard and fast, with plenty of action leading to some big bags. The lakes fished much slower, but true to expectations, they did throw up the bigger fish, and provided Brendan Jervis with his second win of the year with a fish of over 16lb.

…but the winning pike came from the lake

A total of 89 pike were caught including 3 doubles.

Results as follows:

1st Brendan Jervis 16.08 heaviest fish
2nd Eugene Mc Cabe 70.03 bag
3rd Dave Murphy 68.0 bag
