ABT BASS Electric – Lake Gregory – March 2013

Twenty-eight
anglers turned out to fish the 2-day Bass electric event at Lake Gregory
(the Isis Impoundment), held over the weekend of 23rd and 24th March 2013.

Dynamic
duo, Mitchell and Jordan Renz blitzed the field in the afternoon session with a
combined weight of 6kg, leaving the rest of the anglers with a 1.6kg deficit
from Day 1.

Fishing a
custom-built ACM 2-4kg rod with 5lb Power Pro and 10lb leader, Mitchell and
Jordan fished the very top of the middle arm, slow-rolling 2½ inch Ecogear soft
plastics into the weed pockets.

The duo had
their bag in the first hour of the competition and upgraded to their final
weight by 3.00pm.

Thinking
that the number one spot may be out of reach, but still having a positive
attitude to stay in the top five, local angler and Tackle World Bundaberg salesman,
Shane Anderson’s consistency over the two days paid off.  With Mitchell and Jordan denied a legal fish
in the morning session, it left the number one spot open.

Moving from
fifth spot with a weight of 1.565kg on the first day and a good bag of 2.12kg
in the morning session, Shane claimed the number one spot, relegating Jordan into
second place.

Shane’s
weapon of choice was a custom-built 2-4kg Samurai rod teamed with a Stradic CI4
1000 reel, 45lb Fireline and 8lb Vanish leader.  Shane’s lure of choice was a modified Slider Grub in pearl, rigged on a
painted 1/6 ounce jighead.

Sitting in
12 feet of water, Shane cast to the weed edges in the middle reaches of the dam
to consistently catch his fish over the weekend.

Another
consistent angler during the competition was Tim Steenhuis, securing his four
fish by also slow-rolling Slider Grubs in the upper middle arm.  This moved him up the leader board into third
spot relegating Mitchell Renz to fourth.

Congratulations
and thanks to all the Anglers who turned up to fish the Isis Impoundment.

See you on
the water,
