BASS Electric- Wivenhoe 13th August

Ward & Quinn Double Team Wivenhoe

The big fish reputation of Wivenhoe proved itself again.

With fog as thick as pea soup anglers set off on a chilly morning to find the Hoes’ legendary big bass. 35 fish grazed the scales, with the average weight of just over 2 kilos per specimen being recorded.

Johnathon Ward led the way with and impressive two-fish bag of 5.44kg, with Joel Quinlan claiming second fishing out of the same boat.

Ward and Quinlan used similar techniques to fool their fish, with the pair opting for a tail spinner fished with an erratic burn and kill presentation. Most fish taking the lure as it free fell back to towards the bottom.

Glyn Barchuizen finished third (2/2, 4.83kg), while Adrian Wilson secured fourth (2/2, 4.82kg) and the Big Bass Prize (2.83kg), and Simon Barchuizen fifth (2/2, 4.64kg).

The next event on Wivenhoe is scheduled for September 3rd.
