Team Colac Tackle – Samurai Rods (Stephen Parker and Dan Mackrell) have taken out the first round of the Vic Bream Classics. Leading after the first session, the team completed a wire to wire victory by bagging the third biggest limit on the second day to take the victory by 540 grams. Fishing a pattern revolving around schools of bait, the pair junk fished their way to victory, “It was junk fishing at it’s finest” said Mackrell. Focusing on small schools of bait that were being attacked by tailor and salmon, the pair found bream lurking underneath cleaning up the scraps of the feeding frenzy happening above.
The second round of the Vic Bream Classics will be held at Warrnambool on the 19th/20th March.
