Ireland is known for its excellent pike fishing and its hard fighting pike. Lough Derg is among the best pike lakes in Ireland with a great chance of catching big fish. The water is clear and the variation of weedbeds, beautiful bays, drop offs and also deep trolling area’s provide all the ingredients for some great fishing adventures. The stunning surroundings make fishing on Lough Derg an absolute pleasure.
Ferdinand Heijerman is originally from Holland and he has always been a keen pike angler. About 30 years ago he fell in love with Ireland and Lough Derg in particular so he moved to Ireland and he has been living and fishing there ever since. He knows the lake and the behaviour of the pike like the back of his hand. He provides accommodation and spacious 5 meter aluminium fishing boats. The boats are fully equipped with fishfinder, rodholders, landing net, drift sock, bilge pump and so on. You don’t have to be an experienced angler, Ferdinand will give you information and tips on the pike fishing when you are here. As a professional fishing guide he can take you out on the lake in his own fast boat and bring you to the best fishing spots. Rod rental is available.
The unique location makes it possible to enjoy the great atmosphere in the historic town with shops, cosy restaurants and pubs and yet you will be fishing on the lake in 5 minutes by boat! The boats are moored in the river Shannon in the middle of the town.
