Rory Callanan from Galway with his personal best pike of 18 lb. 12 oz.

Angling Reports - 20 October 2012

Kenneth Lowe and friend Rory Callanan from Galway decided to have a guided weekend Pike fishing trip to Longford and stay with Kevin at Melview Lodge.  Kevin said the fishing was a bit slow at first however Rory had three fish to the boat before anyone else had caught a thing.  I advised that a spot of dead baiting could be the answer due to the lack of interest being shown in the lures and what a good decision that turned out to be, Rory beat his personal best of 12 lb. by landing a good fish that went to the scales at 18 lb. 12 oz. followed by a nice fish of 17 lb. 4 oz for my self.  And the best fish of the day fell to float fished mackerel and went to the scales at 28 lb. 1 oz and made our day, thanks lads and hope to see you again soon.
