As you can see from the results, fishing was very poor with the majority of the counting fish being small spurdogs. Skipper Donald McLean tried very hard to put us over the fish with several moves up and down the loch at marks from 40ft to 365ft deep. With very small tides and a lot of fresh water coming into the loch, conditions were always going to be difficult, but the Ayr lads fished hard from the first minute to the last and came out clear winners. Well done boys. A big thanks to Billy McCormack of Silver Lure SAC for measuring the fish and marking up the scores for us.
