The Limerick County Pike Angling Association held their seventh competition of the season last weekend, and it drew the first half of their competition season to a close, with anglers now taking a well-earned rest until September.

12 anglers turned out on the day, and the early fishing was slow until the pike decided to switch on around 11, and then suddenly, fish were being landed left, right and centre… It didn’t seem to matter what method was being used as bottom, float, lure and sink & draw all produced fish.

They ended the day on 38 fish which was a respectable haul for 12 anglers.
