Results | Wyaralong BASS Electric 24th June 2018

The 3rd stop of the Casino Outdoor and Disposal bass electric series was held at Wyaralong Dam.

This location had never been visited by the electric series before and 47 anglers held high hopes as it has been producing some massive bass over the last few months. Recent drops  in water temps had shut things down with only 21 anglers weighing fish and only 9 full bags of bass.

Taking out 1st place and the only person to weight in over 3kg was bass electric organiser Joey Urquhart weighing 2/2 for 3.120 kg and taking out the round’s Big Bass of 1.715 kg.

Urquhart had never fished the lake before prefish on Saturday so he covered lots of ground trying to find areas he liked. He came across two key areas which had good showings of fish. With the start of the tournament underway Urquhart returned to the first key area midway up the lake and filled out his limit in 30min. His approach was to sit wide of the bank casting to the edge slow rolling silent lipless crank baits and crank baits in natural colours. Urquhart fished only 50 meters of bank for the session ,”This area is what I call a transition bank. That’s were the fish are holding wide of the bank but moving up to feed and it’s those active feeding fish I targeted. The magic depth was the 20ft mark” he explained.  His choice of tackle was a Daiwa pixy matched up with a ValleyHill Raison Odesa 6-16lbs rod which was perfect for this application. His reel was spooled with Sufix 832 15lb braid and Sufix super 21 leader in 10lb. Urquhart explained that this lake played right into his favour as this is his favourite technique. He took home $420 and $150 for big bass.

Taking out 2nd place was Chris Osley getting his 2/2 for 2.65kg. Chris fished in a similar area to Urquhart midway up the lake. Osley fished a timbered point throwing Jackall tn60’s in a gill pattern and worked his way through the carp to fill his limit and upgrade once. He would slow roll his lure then pause letting it return to the bottom then  start the retrieve again. Osley fished in around 9ft of water targeting those feeding fish. His rod of choice was a mega bass spin rod matched up with a stradic 2500 Ci4 spooled with 8lb braid and 14lb leader. Osley took home $300 for his efforts.

3Rd place was taken out by Les Smith with his 2/2 for 2.285kg. He Fished the same location as Osley and used the same lure and technique.

There were 30 fish weighed in with an average of 1.01kg per fish which is fantastic given this is a relatively new dam.

Joey would like to thank everyone who attended and those who helped out. The last and final round is next month at Lake McDonald on the Sunshine Coast.
