August 6th Open Competition for pike, Lough Nablahy

A very enjoyable day was had fishing these lakes, the worst of the weather passed us by.
Fishing was slow & everyone had to work hard to find a fish willing to take the bait.
In the end Tom Commons won with a pike of just under 7pd.
Joe Mulrennan took second with 6pd 5oz & Paul O'Donohoe got third with a fish of just under 5pd.
Paul did well fishing from the bank & landed 5 pike in all.
