Mick ‘the fish’ Flanagan has been testing his home waters in the Mullingar area this January. This week, Mick spent a few hours hunting perch with a drop-shot jigging rig and some small paddletail soft plastic lures.

Plump perch

The perch were fairly obliging – as was a midlands pike that had recently had its dinner! When pike are in the mood they will attack a lure even if they have a full belly, as this pike shows.

Still hungry

Mick knows that he is blessed to have such good fishing on his doorstep and he is taking bookings for the 2023 season from anglers who want a share of the midlands fishing action!
