English teenager William Sudders landed the Irish Catch of the Week prize thanks to this cracking 20lb pike from Lough Conn in County Mayo.
Fishing with angling guide Kenny Sloan in some pretty atrocious weather using a variety of tactics, William and fellow angler Graham Applegate boated 15 pike with the 15-year-old stealing the show thanks to lure-caught fish of 12lb, 14lb, 18lb and the personal best ‘twenty’ pictured. Super Shad Rap CH and Salmo Sweeper HP lures did the damage.
Both anglers have planned to return in September for more pike and salmon fishing. More info at www.pikemania.co.uk .
