107 Anglers at Wivenhoe Set Attendance Record!

A crisp morning at Billies Bay on Lake Wivenhoe saw a record crowd of
107 anglers in 59 boats vying for the top 5 places to go through to the
Bass Electric Convention. While the fish were not as active as they
have been in previous years, they were there to be found.
54 fish were
brought to the weigh-in with some very respectable bags. The winner
was Glyn Barkhuisen with 4.3kg, second was Glenn Hamill with 4.2kg,
third was Mike Weger with 3.82kg, forth Steve Kanowski 3.35kg and fifth
was Tom Reynolds with 3.34kg. The Big Bass Prize went to Kerry Ehrlich
with a whopping 2.8kg fish.

A most rewarding site for the organiser was seeing a young couple fishing their first BASS event. Henry Moggs weighed in a 1.98kg fish and his fishing partner Courtney Muller weighed in a 2.00kg one. They fished from a 3 metre tinnie with a transom mount, no bow mount and NO SOUNDER!!! Awesome effort! Courtney’s fish was heavier but Henry’s was longer, I can see many an argument in the future over who had the “best” fish. – Dale Sinclair.
