MENTEITH OUTING SAT 17 TH MAY 2017
14 members had a very productive day at Menteith. All but two caught fish with nothing under 2 lbs
The best catch for the first three fish was Lee Lindop at 10lbs 7ozs and second was Harry Lindop at 9lbs 9oz
Lee, the definitive fish charmer, caught 17 fish in total on the day, catch and return, How does he do it ??
All the fish caught were of excellent quality
As in the past the odd Pike was hooked and duly returned for the winter pike fishing season. Possibly we should arrange a winter Outing for Pike. Anybody interested please contact David Lilley.
The Oaktree Inn provided an attractive choice of dishes on the Menu and we could patronise them again if members were happy to repeat it
The winner of the Outings Trophy for this year was Bill Rankin, who also caught the heaviest fish. Well done Bill 🙂
A very windy day and hard conditions for all.
Sixteen members fished with only seven catching fish.
Lee Lindop won with 7lb 2oz, second was Bill Rankin with 7lb, third was Keith MacKenzie with 6lb 4oz, and fourth was Jake Chambers with 6lb.
Bill Rankin had the heaviest fish at 2lb 8oz.
The Inn at Muckhart was an excellent choice yet again with superb food !
14 members enjoyed a good day at Menteith in glorious weather. In fact members speculated it might be a difficult day to fish due to the bright conditions. However most folk caught fish, Ron Ganley excelled himself and caught a Pike.
The prizes for the day went to John Pickett with three fish for 8Lbs 13 Oz and Bill Rankin with three fish for 8Ibs 1Oz.
The total number of fish caught was 24 for 56Ibs.
The next Outing will be at Loch Frandy in July. We have been over subscribed for this Outing since December last year and have been assured by the fishery of first refusal if any boats become available due to cancellations.
Bank fishing is available at Frandy and one or two members have opted to bank fish if extra boats dont become available.
Ron Ganley did bank fish last year and had excellent results.
The Cameron Cup has again been won by Keith MacKenzie with four fish, not as good as last year however when he had six.
John Pickett Snr and Ronnie Ganley ran him a close second with three fish each.
If it had come down to deciding it on weight Keith would still have won with 9lbs 9ozs, next would have been John with 6lbs 14ozs followed by Ronnie with 6lbs 12ozs. So quite tight !
The outing to Loch Frandy took place on Saturday 18th July, 13 members attended, conditions were very hard on the day with strong winds and squally showers but that didn’t dampen our spirits for a very enjoyable day !
The results were….. Heaviest catch was Ronnie Ganley with 3 fish for 6lb 12oz, John Pickett Sr caught the heaviest fish at 3lb, and the total catch for 13 members was 14 fish for 32lb 3oz.
After fishing all members went to The Inn at Yetts of Muckart for a very enjoyable meal, followed by the results and presentations for heaviest bag and heaviest fish.
