By Marcel Kreiger- ABT Electric Lenthalls Dam, Sunday June 12.
The ever popular bass fishery know as Lenthalls Dam re-opened earlier this month after being closed for refurbishments since January.
On a picture perfect day 35 anglers, fishing from 22 boats took part in the well awaited event. Plenty of full limits were delivered to the scales, with a total of 61 fish weighed in, the largest tipping the scales at 1.67kg. It was captured by Mr â€˜Bassman Spinnerbaitsâ€™ Glen Casey on a Â½ ounce Bassman Spinnerbait, in one of his new skirt colours.
This piscatorial paradise is surrounded by the state forest outside of Maryborough. With countless arms and bays to explore it is considered the prime spot to capture big bass or even score a barramundi. Not a bad by catch when targeting bass.
Glen Casey took out the event, claiming the EvaKool esky and prize pack.
Fishing a slope between 14 and 20 feet, Glen cast to the edge of the lily pads to claim the majority of his fish. His tournament winning tackle included a GL3 Loomis rod matched to a Daiwa CVX reel, spooled with 10 pound Gorilla braid and 20 pound leader.
Landing a total of 8 bass for the event added most of the fish to his catch card with a green coloured Ecogear lipless crankbait.
With further work still to be done to the camp grounds, and the promising bags caught on the weekend, Lenthalls looks to become a popular spot with bass anglers and future comps.
