Lake of Menteith 24/04/18


A slight return to more normal weather with some wind thrown in has seen catches fall off a little.

Chef Gerard Peiquegnot from Pitlochry had a nice looking brown on Monday 23rd  - it took a dancer between the islands.

On Saturday Thack AC caught 36 with 6 boats (weighing in 12 for 36lbs). Stanley AC (4 boats) caught 38  (weighing in 21 for 53lbs), Stirling Castle caught 36 with 5 boats and St.Peter’s weighed in 26 for 63.5lbs and returned another 30. On Sunday East Kilbride weighed in 29 for 65lbs and returned another 53 with 10 boats. Best areas were Hotel Bay, Lochend/Butts and Gateside.

In the second Lake National Championship Heat 64 anglers netted 395 fish with a rod average of 6.2. The cut off weight for qualification was 13lbs 2oz and the average fish weight was 2.3lbs. All the top 3 rods were in Lochend. Bill Sutherland of Avonbank AC (middle) with 16 fish was fishing a 3ft midge tip at Lochend – twiddling cormorants. 2nd placed Brad Chalmers was at Lochend with a buzzer tip and diawlbachs – also with 16 fish. 3rd placed Stuart Marklow had 14 fish with cormorants and Booby.

The angling community have been saddened to hear of the passing of ex National Champ and good friend Alec McEwan – pictured above right.
