With some of the country's top anglers returning to the event this year and a huge €10,000 prize fund on offer, it promises to be an exciting weekend for all participants. 

"We hope to see you there." said Organisers. 

All boats will be provided with measuring boards and all competitors must have a digital camera to take a photo of the pike on the measuring board. This picture then goes to the adjudicator at the end of each day to tally the scores.
