Coarse Angling Safari – Pike, Perch & Roach, Lough Corrib, Connemara, 1 Day Guided
Welcome to the wonderful wild fresh water fishing that is the West of Ireland. Join us on our coarse angling safaris with like minded people in the spectacular scenery of Connemara and “cráic” (fun) in the evenings at a real Irish pub!
Pike fishing on Lough Corrib is ranked very high indeed in the World. In Fred Buller’s famous book “The Doomsday Book of Mammoth Pike” very many of the large SPECIMEN PIKE mentioned were taken from Lough Corrib. Anglers go on the trail of the TROPHY-PIKE on Lough Corrib from the middle of July onwards to the middle of December. Several methods of angling are used to catch pike. Trolling – driving the boat slowly with the bait/lure fishing behind the boat. Spinning – fishing from a stationary boat with baits/lures. Dead-Baiting- fishing with a dead natural bait (usually Perch, Roach, Herring Eel) using a float. This method of angling is best when there is enough wind to make the boat drift. Dead-baiting and Spinning are usually carried out at the same time. Jerk Baiting – this is a rather new method of pike fishing on Corrib and the angler will require a special Rod & Reel and a selection of Jerk Baits.
Other coarse fish include Bream, Roach, Perch, Rudd, Tench, Hybrids, Skimmers & Eels. The waters give good Roach fishing over most of the year, but usually best from April to December. Hybrids are always plentiful in summer and early winter months. Roach to over 1lb. and Hybrids to over 3lb. are common. Bream fishing is best from April and skimmers are plentiful the whole year round. Bream to over 9lb. have been caught in Ballyquirke Lake. Tench are also present in most of the lakes but are often hard to locate because of the size of the waters.
