The strong east winds have eventually died down, allowing the anglers some calm to explore the whole loch – and the fishing has been good. Catches have been reported from the west side of Gateside Bay, Hotel Bay/Shear Point and the  Heronry and Malling. Dave (Van) Stewart (pictured left) from Port of Menteith had a good afternoon today and caught this 5½ pounder in Gateside with a green pea in need of a hair cut. Lures have been on the surface and also deeper, and buzzer tactics have also been successful. Teams of cormorants have worked well – including the “rangers” one. Catches are  predominantly blues in the 2-3lb range – so it may be time to replace that cast. Below a blue trout finely photographed by Colin Riach of Heriots AC.

 

 

September Stats
2 man boat 8hr average catch was 5 fish including released fish. Released fish accounted for 30% of the catches this month. This latter figure was helped by the large number of released fish in the Police International Days and also with the number of fish released in the Scottish club Championship.The average weight in Sept was 2.28lbs.
