Mid March and the SENPAC squad are on another Piking mission in Scotland. Due to the Siberian weather conditions a fortnight before the trip the fishing proved to be hard at times and the last of the club's championship matches resulted in only six fish being caught. Dave Greally retained his trophy from the previous year with Bruce Turnbull and Paul Proctor sharing the runners up place. The biggest Pike caught during the championship was caught by Chris Graham. Even though the majority of the fish caught were small one member did manage to winkle out a couple of the bigger girls. SENPAC Pike Angler Of The Year for 2017 Peter Armstrong weighed in with two fish at 12lb 8ozs and the next day the biggest of the trip at 17lb 4ozs.
Paul Proctor. Better than nothing at all.
For some members the highlight was watching and photographing the wildlife.
The region has again had a very good season Pike fishing. Not so much the quantity of Pike caught but the quality. The lads have had some really nice fish the last few months. We now look forward to next October when we will start all over again in our quest for big Pike. In the meantime the Summer will arrive and hopefully provide us all with some good fishing for other coarse species.
