Menteith newsflash.... Menteith newsflash...

More than 200 pike - including seven 20s and more than 40 doubles - were caught during the PAC's privileged access event on the Lake of Menteith today.

There were fears the event would have to be cancelled, with gales predicted. But the winds were gentler than forecast and the fish were well up for it.

PAC webmaster Dave Lumb (top pic) had the biggest fish of the day at 29lbs on a Burt.

Iain Watkins (left) wasn't far behind with this beautiful 28lbs which fell to a Castaic.

PAC special events organiser Mark Skinner said: "All in all a great day for an event that could have been cancelled."

Tomorrow (sunday), we have a privilege access day on Loch Venacher. Check the PAC newsblog tomorrow night to see how it went...
