The King of Lough Erne; Pike, Essox Lucius Lough Erne is famous for its monster pike. The pike is an aggressive predator which can be found in masses in low-lying rushes bed through the spring season. When the water gets cold in autumn the pike retreat to deeper parts of the lough and feed on bigger prey.
The largest pike in the world grows to an amazing 1.5m and 30kg of
weight, the dream of every fisherman. I believe lurking in Lough Erne
may be a fish of this size.
We suggest a medium or heavy rod, spinning or casting up to 80g/150g. No longer than 2.5m, use braid line, with at least 20lb test. Avoid if possible fluocabon and use a metallic trace.
Use a big lure, minimum of 13cm, the popular lure that we use.

For bait fishing use a 3lb rod up to 3.5m, use braid line with 30lb test, 30-50g float, and metallic trace with a 30lb test.
The best reel to use will be a bait runner.
