Allan Renaudin from France was over for annual fishing holiday to Melview Lodge in Longford, and what a start to his holiday he had taking 36 Pike to 14 lbs in the first three days on Lures. Kevin said, after this the weather changed and we had to do some fishing from the bank. This reduced the numbers of fish being caught but produced some cracking fish between 16lb and 24lb to static dead baits, then it was back to the boat. I decided that due to the cold spell we would put the Lures away and change to dead baits, this produced fish to 27lb 2oz and was solid action for four days with the fish taking Herring, mackerel, Pollen and Roach dead baits. Next week I report on Allan’s last weeks fishing, log on next week to see how he got on.
All fish returned un-harmed to the water.
