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
