Paul Goaziou from France, a few pike were caught to double figures, this big trout was probably the biggest fish 10lb 11oz

Angling Reports - 19 August 2015

Paul Goaziou from France was on his first trip to Ireland for a spot of pike fishing, guided on the first day by Kevin saw a number of pike caught but mainly small to around 10lb and all released safely.   The next couple of days Paul fished alone and produced for him pike around the same size as previous days. I decided to take him to a venue in the hope of getting him a bigger pike. The day started slow and then in the afternoon picked up for us.    Things just got better after Paul managed to hook into what looked like a good pike, and to his surprise he had hooked into a cracking trout. The fish went to the scales at 10lb 11oz and I must say by the size of its girth it looked like it had eaten quite a bit already, and as it was released will only continue to get bigger!    Great fishing week and hope to see him in Ireland again soon.
