A Few Fine Fish From Floods!

Today saw the first competition of the Dublin Pike Anglers 2018 season. With water levels fluctuating over the last two weeks it was hard to pick a venue. Last minute decisions saw a vote to change to a river venue with reasonable water levels, after very bad flooding had affected our original venue.

Overall the day was a good as to be expected, and the decision to change proved to be a good choice. The remnants of the floods were still in the fields, the rain was consistently spitting but the fish were biting the bank was accessible.

The fish were all of a reasonable stamp, with 2 doubles caught and a few just short of the 10lb mark. The largest of the day fell to angler Dave Murphy with a 17lb 2oz fish caught on a wobbled roach.  Second heaviest fish of the day fell to a lure and into the hands of Godfrey Donohue at 13lb 1oz and the 3rd fell to Joey Bonnie at 9lb 13oz.

The top 3 positions at the end of the day were as follows:

1st Joey Bonnie

2nd Dave Murphy

3rd Steve Farelly

It was a hardy day but all agreed the fishing was aptly good considering the condition of the river.

Our next competition is scheduled for next Sunday 25th March. There is still opportunity to join the club and we extend a welcome to all interested anglers to join us on the 25th. For info on joining the club and to come along for the competition see our membership section.
