Lake of Menteith Report 21st Sept

The Water temperature and clarity at Gateside is 14C and 2.3m. Recent wind direction has been moderate to strong south-westerlies or westerlies and anglers have gone to the Lochend/Butts drifts to find shelter.

August Catch Statistics from the Lake
The Lake looks like it might be set for a record catch year in terms of catch rate, as good catches were maintained through out the year due to the cool summer. The August catch data shows that 5.5 fish were netted per two man 8 hour day boat – this includes returned fish at 18.7% of the total catch. The mean weight of the fish in August was 2.2lbs. 

Scottish Club Championship Semi-Final Results
17 teams competed and the 51 anglers caught 206 fish for 434lbs. 68 fish were returned.
Teams qualifying for the final on the 2nd October were Neilston FF with 19 fish for 42lbs, 2nd were Change AC with 20 fish for 41lbs 8oz, Grizzlecats 17 fish 31lbs 3oz, Leslie LLannilar 14 fish 32lbs 13oz, Troon 15 fish 30lbs 13oz, Kinross 15 fish 30lbs 4oz, Rowbank 13 fish 27lbs 6oz and Monifieth 13 fish 26lbs 4oz. Best basket was Brian MacKenzie with 8 fish for 18lbs 0.4oz.

Daily Record Champion of Champions Draw
The top 4 bag weights from each team automatically qualify for the Daily record Champion of Champions Final on the 16th October. Last year anyone who bagged up in the heats also qualified for the Champions Final. This year due to the Lake fishing very well in the summer heats, leading to around 40 individuals bagging up but not making the top 4 heaviest weights, it was decided to include these individuals in a ballot for the qualification to the Champions Final as there were insufficient boats to allow everyone to fish. Those successful in the ballot and through to the final are; D.Keenan, A.Lusk, G.Fleming, D.Avery, J.Crawford, J.McBride, J.Walker, A.Caisley, S.Lees, P.Edge, I.Muir, S.Barnes, T.Calderwood, C.Heck, J.Anderson, A.Brock, S.Robertson, E.Hawk, J.Gardner, C.Murray, S.Corsa, K.Neely, T.Graham, D.Bonnington, J.Buchanan, Keith Renton.
