I was down at Rescobie today with the CSSC. Started off well with a 3lb rianbow on the 1st drift, looked like we were in for a good day.
How wrong could you be  :z6 Wind started to get up,  only sheltered spot was doc Millers, even then it was difficult as the wind was swirling. David managed a nice rianbow before it just go to wild.
We watched as another boat tried to get back to the boathouse, even with the electric motor and the oars it was a struggle. I said to David we should have a go next time there was a lull. It was a bit of a struggle but with some sterling work from David on the oars we made it. The guy in the boathouse was heading out to rescue a couple of boats up the far end who could not make it back up.
Its a nice venue, typical lowland loch, some nice Rainbows and laways some big Brownies caught, you can also get a surprise now and agin like today when one of our members hooked what was estimated to be a 12lb Pike.

Looks like you chose the wrong weekend Jim  :z8

Poor show when your expectations are shattered due to the wind or cold.  :z6
Should have taken the Baitfish patterns for the Pike by the sound of things.
