Danny Robinson proved to be a dominating force at Lenthallâ€™s after finishing second in the first round took it one step further in the second to win with 1.86 kg.
On what could only be described as a perfect day on the water, little joy was found by the thirty-six anglers, with only twenty-seven fish placed on the scales.
Danny fished the upper reaches of the eastern arm with Tournament Ace and Guiding Guru, Glen Casey, who claimed second place with 1.74 kg. Danny tempted his quarry with MegaBass Vibrations and Ecogear Vt65â€™s. Placing his boat in 20 â€“ 25 feet of water using the â€˜burn and killâ€™ technique to land eight legal fish. His arsenal consisted of a Samuri RBC008 with a Shimano Calais loaded with PC Braid and a Loomis MB 783 with a Diawa Advantage loaded with Diawa Senor.
AFC To-Be Glen Casey fishing out of the back of Robinsonâ€™s boat used different techniques to collect his bag of two fish. Glen used a 3/8 ounce Bassman jighead rigged with a 3 inch pearl on black glitter Powershad and an Ice Jig. Glen would make long casts while slow rolling back to the boat and vertical jigging his Ice Jig.
Glenâ€™s weapons of mass destruction were Georgeâ€™s Custom Rods on Hastings blanks teamed with a Diawa 103 loaded with 10 pound Power Braid and a Sustain with 4 pound Fireline.
Third place went to Andrew Roff, with Joel Quinlan and Paul Phillips taking out equal fourth. Danny Robertson also took out Big Bass with a 1.1 kg fish.
With reports of Barra being caught and the results of recent compâ€™s, could the reliable Big Bass of Lenthallâ€™s be a thing of the past â€“ only time will tell.
