Hits the Mark
first Isis bass electric for the year
attracted 33 anglers and while the fishing was tough some great bass were
weighed in. Winning by over 250g was BCF Employee Mark Lockwood. Lockwoods lures
of choice were shallow Jackall chubbies in bluegill and brown shrimp colour. Lockwood
landed his first bass at about 6.20am and had bagged out by 8 am. He targetted
edges around the dam and also the timber. The winning tackle was 6lb Fins
windtamer braid and 8lb and 12 lb Yamatoyo leader spooled on a Daiwa Sol 2500
reel with matching rod.
at Marks heels was a new comer to the bass electric series, Jordan Renz. Jordan secured
2nd place using TT blades which he hopped through the middle of the dam. Renz landed
two similar sized fish, catching the first at 10am and the second at 11am. The
tackle used was a rod custom built by local rod building legend Tim Mulhall
teamed with a Shimano Stradic Ci4 reel spooled with 4lb Berkley fireline braid and 10lb leader.
of the 33 anglers fishing the tournament 17 weighed in bass. A total of 29 bass
were weighed in with an average weight of 0.931kg.
