Sundays pike competition results and photos from Ballyhoe 1
Ballyhoe 1 was the chosen venue for Sunday,s pike competition which was contested by both juniors and seniors alike and ran for 4 hours throughout the day.
Great fun was had by all but unfortunately the junior section failed to catch a single pike on the day .
The seniors didnt fair much better either with only two small pike being recorded but at least there was an overall winner ...
Several of the lads did hold back afterwards and continued to coarse fish it into the evening but then reported they couldnt even catch the abundance of perch that have been there for weeks and had amassed in large numbers just over the shelf and on any other given day are usually easy caught
I might wonder if all the activity pushed them out followed by the pike which were unusually quite too !
Nevertheless we did manage two winners with Simon Martin taking first prize and Liam lynch clutching on to second with a very small but much appreciated jack pike too .
Well done to all who turned up on a difficult day angling wise and the club appreciates the on going support givin by anglers far and near and looks forward to holding a simular competition in the future
