BASS Electric – Wivenhoe 3rd September 2006




Once again, Lake Wivenhoe lived up to its reputation as the Big Bass lake of South East Queensland.

Foregoing their traditional Fathers’ Day brekkie in bed, 45 anglers turned out on a fresh autumn morning to line up at the start . The majority of anglers caught fish, and they were taken on a variety of lures, from Soft Plastics to Tailspinners and Spinnerbaits.
The fact that the top 15 place getters weighed in bags of 5.00kg or more is testament to the quality of the Lake Wivenhoe fishery.

After the counting was done, Ken Murray crept to the top of the leader board with a massive bag of 5.70kg. Ken used Jackall Mask Vibes to score his fish which were suspended out from Platypus Cliffs. Snapping at Ken’s heals in second place was John Fooks with a 5.50kg bag which included the Big Bass for the day. At a massive 3.15kg, this monster Wivenhoe bass took a Baby Bass Slider fished just off the bottom in the same area of the dam. Finishing off the Top 3 was the quiet achiever Marcel Kreiger with another 5.50kg bag.
