We made it to the first of April , it's spring in Scotland and still feels like winter . Anyway we decided to fish Loch Lomond and ledger for species .
Chance in a million .

We soon found some fish , anchored and ledgering .

We have so much water to fish from .

Starting with the species .

Can you name them all?



Plenty action around and eventually landing one of the rarest , protected fish in the Uk . A Powan .

Enjoy the Video , photos , tight line all , Nico

Agree with sellos, a baby dace due to the big eyes.

The ruffe is a specimen in my eyes. Probably well hated by Lomond fishers as it is an invasive species!
They were introduced by pikers years ago , it was not probably the best idea at the time . Wish they had introduced zander instead . Those little ruffe are prolific . more and more and more . Pelamid

I tick it as a dace . sellos . Identifying species is never easy and brings controversy . We are all here to learn . It is so confusing at times buddy
Twenty years ago I fished frequently around the moorings. Everything caught there (except powan) was simply called "bait"!
Probably had less pike than you get on lures, but did have a few good ones. Thinking back, all of my bigger pike came on deadbaits!

At that time you would see huge shoals of powan at the surface well out from the shore. Never caught one so I know it's a rare catch on rod 'n line.

Nice bit of video, brought back some good memories!

I have a 14' inflatable kayak now but dare not post on the kayak forum as it uses a 6 hp outboard. Would expect to get the same comments as, when using my folding bike, I pass racing cyclists going uphill - "bloody ELECTRIC bike!"
