Borumba Bass

Lake Borumba ABT Electric Competition

This weekend gone held the ABT electric comp at Lake Borumba. Here is a rundown on how the top 3, caught there fish on and where.

This event was a two day event. The first session was from 1 pm to 6 pm on Saturday and the second session was from 6am to 12pm on the Sunday.

On Saturday it was overcast and rainy so it was a perfect edge bite but on the Sunday it was very sunny with not much cloud

1st place- Jeremy McConnell
Jeremy had a game plan to fish the start of the timber casting white PML spinner baits to the steep rock walls. He caught his first fish pretty early in the session and the bite shut down so he decided to keep moving around looking for those active bass holding close to the steep rock walls up the Yabba arm.

On the next rock wall he caught his second legal fish, which gave him confidence that he had cracked a pattern. He caught a total of 4 bass in the first session and another 3 in the 2nd. The fishing was extremely tuff so Jeremy slowed his retrieve right to try and keep that lure in the strike zone Longer. This paid off for Jeremy with his first session bag 2.98kg which was the biggest of the two days, setting him up for a win.

2nd Place Brett Renz.
The father of the Renz Twins had a tuff start on the Saturday Avro session but still managed to catch a cracker fish that went 2.11kg which eventually won big bass for the event .Sunday morning session was where he succeeded. Like most of the field he fished the main basin targeting shallow weed edges with spinner baits and small ecogear power shad soft plastics in the eel colour. The first day was very tuff but the second day I got my eye in and moved around looking for those active fish. I caught my first fish at 7.00am and my 2nd at 8.30. I got one upgrade near Borumba creek which was a big boost and it was enough to get me 2nd place and a qualification into the electric convention

3rd Place Mitchell Renz
Mitchell like his dad fished the shallow weed edges around the main basin. The first session was a good session for us. My Brother and I had a game plan to fish shallow divers over the weed edges we found that Ecogear SX40 in the gold and black worked the best for us. The fishing was very tuff but I still managed 3 nice bass and a few undersize bass. Callum Munro

Bass still on the bite at Macdonald
___________________________________________________________________

Hi all
Craig Whitford and I went for a fish on Monday to Lake MacDonald.

We found some schooled up bass in the Three Ways area. We got them on Little Max Blade in clown colour, Jackall Tn60's, Spinnerbaits and Keitech Easy Shinner 3" soft plastics.

Most of the fish came from hopping the lure along the weed edges and off the bottom.

Millie my dog came for a run and got a bit hot so she had a quick cool off with the bass in the live well.

Great day with your mates caught beat it.

Also took my family for a run Sunday avro, and Ella caught her first bass all by herself.

I cast a blade out for her and let it hit the bottom then give her the rod and she slowly wound it in.

She got whacked and it started to pull her in. I helped a little, but her smile was awesome.

Very proud Dad Moment!
Cheers Mick

Len Wood and I ducked out to Lake MacDonald this morning for a quick flick before work.

It was a magic morning to be on the water. We started fishing the Runway Point up towards Gazebo Bay with surface poppers.

There wasn't much activity around on the surface, I think it is starting to get a little cool for a surface bite, but it is hard not to try early just in case.

We then moved out to the deeper water around the Three Ways area and found a few bass schooled up we through Little Max Blades, Smak spinnerbaits and Jackall TN60's.

Had a ball, caught 5 or 6 fish each for the morning a lot of them were small but they still hit you hard.

Good fun Beautiful Spot.

Grey sky’s greeted the 23 angler’s to Round 2 of the Hooked On Mixed Species Catch & Release Social Comp held at the beautiful Lake Macdonald.

With the dam being an electric only dam it was a very social start as all the team headed off to the fishing spots. Most team headed up the dam to around the three ways area.

Father and son team of Steve and John Noble took out 1st place with a convincing victory. John and Steve had a game plan from their pre-fish and they headed straight to a hole in the weed around the 3 ways area. They then use their Minn Kota to spot lock their position on the back edge of the weed and they would then throw Jackall Tn6's, Mask Vib's and blades towards the front edge of the weed and work them back along the bottom with a combination of small hops and a slow wind retrieve.

This paid off big time for them, with the guys landing 22 legal bass and the biggest for the day going 46cm to the fork.

Second place went to Bailey Bozoky and Lachlin Devlin. They caught 3 legal fish, 2 bass and a 50cm yellowbelly which gave them 10 bonus points for two species. The boys started the morning throwing Jackall TN60’s & Little Max Blades to the edges of the weed and winding them back across the top of the weed. Lachlin caught his yellowbelly at the bubble trail on a Little Max 1/4oz Blade hopping it off the bottom.

Third place was taking out by Lane "the Hoff" Hoffmann and Jonah. They stared their morning throwing blades to the edges but it wasn't till their spotted fish hard on the bottom in the 3 ways area that Lane changed to a Keitech Easy Shiner Soft Plastic, with a long cast and a slow wind close to the bottom he picked up 2 nice Bass. All in all it was a very enjoyable day with all teams landing fish. I would like to thank everyone who came along for a great social morning.

Cheers Mick

Everglades - Noosa

Hi Fella's,

Thought I would shoot over some recent pics from The Everglades.
I have been loving the fishing up there over the last month and have managed some nice fish.
Amongst loads of smaller ones my two better fish have been a 43cm and a 40cm fish. Both caught on 4lb much to Callum's disgust…lol.
Had a good session with Eddy Sweres too, where he scored a very well-conditioned 40cm fish on popper.
Just a spectacular place to fish and catching fish on the surface up there is a real privilege.
Cheers,
Pete

I am loving fishing the Noosa area at the moment. Out on the reef I have been catching a few Squire and Grassies on plastics and soft vibes. I also did a trip out to the Barwon banks with a long time mate Matthew Casacelli and caught many reef species including some XOS Amberjack, tusk fish, job fish pear; perch and many more. On the same trip we raised a few Marlin on the way home with one lost boat side.

The river has been fishing well. I fished with Sprog and Manni over Easter for Fathead, big bream and jacks. Up the Noosa river arm in the everglades the Bass have been firing at times but mostly smaller fish landed.
