While the first event in 2010 attracted 55 anglers, that number more than doubled to 120 in 2012, and many more are expected to take part this year to boost the prize fund to €21,000.
As The Irish Times reports, top prize of €3,000 is guaranteed to the angler with the biggest pike.
This year's entry fee will also be reduced to €100 per angler for all three days or €40 per day. Fees will be returned in prize money with daily and overall prizes.
“We have made changes, especially when it comes to handling and photographing fish,” said organiser Dave Haughton.
