Hi all.

So been trying out a few lakes up around the Monaghan area but looking for a small lake (6-10 hectres) that have big pike up to 20lbs my biggest is 13lbs so far which was on lake muchno but that lake is just too big to fish from shore.. tried corcrin lake which was cool but only got a 4lb'er wondering anyone any advice

From a long time ago... try Lough Egish. Easy access from the road, creamery effluent used to produce massive bags of fish for coarse anglers, and the pike learned to hunt around the outflows. Might be different now with heightened regulations but it's an option for you.

It is a trade off- bigger water potentially bigger fish and smaller waters maybe less likely to hold a 20lb. + fish. There are exceptions to the rule though. Fish them all and enjoy the different challenges.
