Bonanza for Brendan at Newbridge Pike Anglers Competition

2561

Having had a quiet couple of months on their competition calendar, the Newbridge District Pike Anglers made up for lost time with a weekend double-session, fishing both Saturday and Sunday, with a bit of camping and rest and relaxation in between…

Saturday’s competition was a normal affair, with fishing from 9am to 6pm, but it was an early start for the 23 anglers on Sunday, with fishing from first light to 3pm. The fishing was very consistent over the whole weekend, with 227 pike landed, including seven doubles, so most anglers will have been happy with their catches.

But one angler in particular had a weekend to remember, as Brendan Jervis seemed to have the fishing gods shining on him all weekend. He caught the two largest pike on the Saturday session (15.03lb & 13.14lb) to win that competition. Then, on Sunday, he went all in, smashing his own competition record with an 82lb+ bag, including a whopping river pike of 24.11lb, winning him Sunday’s competition as well.

What a beauty…
