Big Splash at Lake from Irish

Lake of Menteith 6th August 2019

Water Temp at 6ft 20C Secchi Disk Clarity Gateside Bay 2.6m

Congratulations to the Irish Youth Fishing Team on their International Win at the Lake Last Wednesday

The Irish (pictured cooling off above) caught 77 fish, 13 more than second placed Scotland. Wales were 3rd and England picked up the wooden spoon – although they were unlucky as they caught more fish than the Welsh and were an angler down for much of the match. Best tactics were a hi D line in Gateside Bay and the whole Inchmahome Deeps – with buzzers or diawls and a booby on the point. Other areas fishing this week have been the gap and a few on the roadshore. High Temperatures and thundery conditions have kept the fish deep. Colin Riach was out after the match and did manage 5 on the dry and sent me this photograph below.
