Lough Muckno produces two 20lb pike in two casts

A pike fishing trip to the vast Lough Muckno in County Monaghan saw Gary Robinson bank his first-ever ‘twenty’, weighing-in at a new personal best of 21lb 8ozŠwhich he followed up with another weighing 20lb 4oz on his very next cast!

It was the first time that Gary and his angling partner Scott Ring, both from County Wicklow, Ireland, had been fishing since the start of the New Year.

The friends worked their joey mackerel hookbaits at around 40yds range as they enjoyed a steady stream of sport on the 800-acre venue.
