The bench mark of NSW Bass Electric’s, Dave “Kiwi” Trinder, smashes the opposition to take out the last Bass electric on a glassed out Lake St Clair in 2009.
Kiwi dominated the pack bagging out with 2 fish for 2.08 Kg fishing the Carrowbrook arm with Camo worms rigged on 1/12 Oz heads, worked slow to the edge & around timber. Helping his limit was the big bass of 1.51Kg coming early in the session.
Most importantly speaking to Kiwi on his way home to Taree, he wished to thank Paul Piper, a fellow competitor for his help in getting home after the tournament. Kiwi had car troubles & without hesitation, on his way to the Somerset Bass Pro tournament, Paul lent a helping hand to see them both on their way. The friends we make in Fishing!
Second was Ben Gibson with 2/2 for 1.75 & a crucial lesson in venting impoundment bass, also fishing the Carrowbrook arm with Eco Gear blades in deep water, the fish came around 8am with the odd upgrade.
Rounding out the podium was Glenn Hayter, fishing the bay behind the camp area with Grass Minnow’s on Custom 1/4oz heads to acquire his bag of 1.58Kg.
