Pike fishing in Ireland.
Other coarse fishing
Aside from the two species above there are a myriad of other coarse fish which are pursued after by coarse anglers. Some of these are fished for in purpose built lakes, others in natural lakes and other in canals.
The main species are barbel, bream, chub, dace, gudgeon, ide, orfe, perch, rudd and tench. As with carp and pike fishermen there are anglers who will only target one species to the exclusion of all others.
Match fishing is extremely popular and match anglers will happily catch any of the aforementioned species, preferably in great numbers as results are based on total weights caught.
