I hear that the Gill nets are down on Corrib again and that pike killing competitions have started again. Braitreact na Coiribe angling club held a pike killing competition on Corrib last Sunday and will be holding another next Sunday. Weigh ins are at the Commercial Boat Club.
Each year several local trout clubs obtain Section 18 exemptions from the Western Regional Fisheries Board. These exemptions are granted so the clubs can legally kill pike.
We have had an agreement with the Western Regional Fisheries Board whereby pike over 90 cms are safely returned to the waters. They are supposed to do this when gill netting and they are also supposed to put this as a condition on the Section 18 exemptions. I note that one of the cups on offer last week was for the heaviest pike. I dont know what weight won - yet. I will find out.
I have just sent an email to the Western Regional Fisheries Board looking for a wide range of info on the above.

If things go to plan the Western Regional Fisheries Board will cease to exist at the end of the year. Hopefully the new Inland Fisheries Ireland will look at old policies with a new open objective mind

From what I have heard the new CEO may be a little more pike friendly.

Not sure that he would be more pike friendly than any other fish friendly.
Most certainly he will not carry on old practices unless he can be shown that they are scientifically necessary and financially necessary. I would expect changes soon enough on the winter ban on piking on Sheelin for one. I wouldnt be surprised if he were to make an interesting announcement re pike research in the next month or two !!!!!
