NSW BASSin Tournaments – R1 St Clair

Team NSW Bassin Tournaments- Lake St Clair Round 1

NSW Bassin Tournaments held there first round at Lake St Clair on the 2nd and 3rd February

53 Teams competed in a hard shutdown bite, probably due to the fact that the water levels of the lake have been very unstable of late. With rising water levels the fishing seemed to be very inconsistent.

1st – One team stood out though . Craig Quinton and Paul Newcombe from Team I’m Bassin claimed first prize working spinnerbaits and lipless crankbaits along the edges to get their bag. Craig and Paul picked up a matching pair of Lamiglass XS 661 BA Certified Pro tournament rods matched to Shimano Stradic reels for their performance along with an 85L Eva Kool ice box .

2nd – Allen Cleary and Greg Beattie from Team Xtreme had another tactic alltogether. They also worked an area up near the top arm but opted to work the flats with surface poppers pulling most of their fish in both the morning sessions but struggling on Saturday afternoon. Allen and Greg received matching of BLA wet weather gear for their performance .

3rd- Grant Boyle and Reid Tierney from Team First Blood opted to troll, due to the fact that Grant’s electric packed it in . The boys picked up PFD’s and Kokoda fishing shirts for their efforts.

Champion Junior was the ever consistant Reid Tierney with 3 Fish for 2.560kg and was all smiles wining a Lamiglass CS 661 rod and Daiwa Procaster spin reel.

Champion Female angler Maree Scott soldiered away all weekend consistently out fishing her husband in all 3 sessions. Maree spent most of her time on the water sitting on the back deck of the Skeeter casually casting poppers and slow rolling plastics. Just goes to show that a relaxed attitude can certainly mean more fish. Maree received a Wilsons Live Fibre spin stick matched to a Daiwa Procaster reel and a wet weather jacket from BLA.

The encouragement award went to Team Fossil. Despite catching no fish for the weekend the pair demonstrated great attitude and determination and were deserved recipients of then prize.
