Snow and ice at Lochter Fishery meant anglers who were willing to adapt to the conditions, had a great time, with some exceptional bags being achieved.

On two visits, Bill Gibb had bags of 15 and 23 using a mix of very slowly moved buzzers and okey dokey’s.

Craig McLean had 10 mainly on bloodworms, Albert Trail 11 on buzzers, C Clark 16 on okey dokey’s and these new fangled squirmy worms.

Black and green mini lures worked for S Williams who netted 10. J S Robertson had eight mainly on a red tail zulu while Dave Robb also had eight score using PTN’s and montanas. The top scorer who turned a very cold Saturday into a brilliant day was Paul Sharp who caught and released 28 eight using a clearly tempting mix of buzzers and bloodworms.

Although the forecast is for things to warm up a little, anglers should be under no illusions that winter is upon us.
