Pike Fishing Report, October 17, 2006

By: Marc O'Regan, Angling Guide & Proprietor of Cranmor Guesthouse, Trim, Co. Meath (087 9153002)

Today we had the pleasure of taking well known fishing guru and writer Paul Gustaffson out for a days piking on Lough Ramor, Co. Cavan. A dull overcast day with temperatures ranging from 14 centigrade to 16 with very little click in the day, however the initial contact was scintillating with varying views and ideas discussed on how things would pan out throughout the day. The definites were discussed, wind, water temperature, seiche, water clarity and of course the best possible technique to compliment the foregoing. The game plan was agreed, the camera crew set up and the battle was joined. After just one hour it was evident that we were going to struggle and a little apprehension began to creep in about 12 o clock in the knowledge that rain was definitely on the way and an evening that was going to close in very quickly. At 1245 the window of opportunity opened and Paul quickly had 4 fish to boat up to 2 o clock the best weighing it at a credible 23lbs and 11 ounces. Good footage, great craic and a very memorable fishing day spent in the company of one of the best... well nearly. Paul is the big fellow in the middle.

Darndale Junior Angling Competition

DAI organized a fishing competition for 26 juniors at Darndale pond in Belcamp. This was sponsored by Sphere 17, Darndale community centre and the DAI. Fishing was good on the day with plenty of rudd and the competition winner was Caroline Flynn.

Rosslare Small Boats Festival

34 boats participated in the 21st Rosslare Small Boats Festival in September. Weather conditions were the worst that this competition has encountered in its 21 year history. In effect 3 days fishing was lost which meant that the normal 4 day species competition was reduced to 2 days.

The main prize was presented to the team that caught the most species of fish over the duration of the competition and it was second year running for Steve Mills (Gosport and District Sea Angling Club) and Dave Timms from Portsmouth who caught 20 species with a weight of 10.54 kgs. In second place was Richie Stead and Keith Pemberton from the Wirral Boat Angling Club who had 19 species with a weight of 17.22kgs. In third place was Mike Woods, Alan Johnson and Colin Cooke from Southport and Sefton Boat Angling Clubs who had 19 species with a weight of 15.06kgs.
