Toonumbar BASS Electric- 19/20th Marh

28 anglers braved wet and cold conditions
for the first two day format ABT Bass electric at Toonumbar.
 78
fish hit the scales over the weekend. The over cast conditions seeming to
favour the fish after constant hot weather- bringing them back to the edges.

One angler took advantage of the low light
conditions- Barry Oxford keeping consistent bags over the comp. Barry used a
Dawia Alphas with a Gloomis IMX 782 rod on 15lb braid and 20lb leader.  By using Bassman spinner baits tight to the
edges, in colours #7 and #1 in a dual silver willow combo in 5/8 weight, He
also took out the big bass for the event .

Runner up for the event was Paul Gray,
fishing the same area as Barry using kokoda lipless cranks. Keeping them tight
to the weed edge was the key to getting consistent bites. Paul used a Dawia
Fuego reel and custom Samurai rod 6 lb braid and 15 lb leader to remove
them  from the thick weed present
throughout the dam.

Thanks to everyone for turning up and
sticking it out! you all fished hard,well done.

Thanks Adrian Melchior
