The 2nd stop on the Casino Outdoor Bass electric tour was the picturesque Clarrie Hall Dam. Sixty-four keen anglers took off on what was a typical morning for Clarrie hall, overcast with rain and a cool breeze. Forty-three anglers brought fish back to the scales with 28 anglers having their full limit.
The one angler that stood out from the rest was Nathan Swanson taking out 1st place with 2/2 for 2.185kg and also the Casino Outdoor Big Bass of 1.155kg. Swanson fished the upper reaches of the lake to find his first fish early by suspending OSP Dunks along the weed edges. The fish were only taking the lure on the dead pause.
He searched other areas of the lake but on arriving back to the first location he landed his second fish with the same technique.Swanson’s rod of choice for this technique was a NS Black Hole 3-8lb rod matched with a Daiwa reel. Swanson used 8lb fluorocarbon leader and natural coloured OSP dunks. He took home $440 and $150 big bass.
Second place went to long time bass electric angler Stuart France. France returned to the bass electric series with a bang landing his 2/2 for 2.065kg.
Choosing to fish the lower end of the lake France opted to throw a Gulp in camo colour on a 1/6 jighead on his Barrabass ip841 matched with a Daiwa luvias Spooled with 10lb sunline. France caught his limit mid session with one good upgrade late in the session and for this he took home $320.
Rounding out the top 3 was Luke Clark.
I would like to thanks everyone who turned up on the day and everyone for being patience with the delayed weight in. The next round will be at
Wyralong Dam and we hope to see you all there.
