Lake of Menteith 14/4/15

Excellent buzzer fishing continues at the Lake (weather allowing). Washing line tactics with sink tip or floater are the tactics. Wee black boobies can be good imitations of the larger buzzers. The first boat has just arrived in today (Calum and Russel Clarke from Torrance) with a catch report of 4 killed for 10lbs 4oz and 15 returned. Son Calum caught 13 fish and was fishing a pseudo cat booby and a yellow owl buzzer. He said anywhere, where there was calm water (only place today was the Butts) the fish were on the buzzers. Andy Anderson (Edinburgh) spooned two fish and the above picture shows the result (stop biting your nails Andy).

Notable catches: Marklow and son 22, Alan Murray 13, Rainbow Warriors 6 boats 24 fish for 54lbs plus 78 returned, Monifieth 5 boats 19 fsih 55lbs, Balbeggie 8 boats 48 fish 113lbs 15 returned, Stirling Castle 6 boats 18 fish for 44lbs plus 33rtd, Gillespie (Frank and Grant) 20 rtd, Robertson BOE 42, Watson/Osler Carnoustie 48, A.Rough Alloa 19, J.Kerr Beith 24, Anderson/Bett 30, Lochinch 6 boats 29 fish 82lbs plus 20rtd, Ramage and Galloway 25rtd (incl a brown and bow of 6 and 7lbs respectively).

Manager Quint Glen is shrugging off a broken shoulder blade - his second significant injury in 12mths, whilst Bailiff Douglas Fraser felt a right sharp pointy thing and was hopping mad when he found his welly and boot stuck to a plank with an upturned nail (the other boot had a steel shank). Big thanks to all the well-wishers and to Alastair Mair, John Buchanan, Peter Auchterlonie and James Cameron for stepping in and keeping the plates spinning.

Next available unbooked boat at the lake (barring cancellations) is the 23rd April
