Lake of Menteith 30th April 2014
6ft Water Temperature 12C , Clarity (Secchi disc) 2.3m.

The Lake is starting to stratify and clarify, as the water heats up. Top tactics have been near the surface with floating lines and buzzers. Straight lining buzzers appeared to be the key to the success of Change AC in yesterday’s Police Tri match, and the hot spot yesterday was the west end of Gateside Bay. The booby with buzzers and sink/midge tip has also worked well. The fish are fairly well spread out with good bags from the Heronry, Lochend and todd Hole and Sam’s Point (as well as Gateside) in recent days.
In yesterday’s Tri, 20 boats caught 274 fish of which 75 were weighed in. The five teams comprised The Police, Royal Navy and three local clubs; United Edinburgh, Change AC (the “pro-ams”) and Gartmore.  Pictured left is the Police and some extras.

The match was won “out the park” by Change AC with 16 fish for 35lbs 6oz weighed in and 99 rtd. In 2nd place were United Edinburgh with a total of 56 fish, 3rd were the Police with 45 fish, 4th were Gartmore AC with 32 fish and in 5th place were the Royal Navy with 26 fish.
