Ward Wrangles Clarrie’s Bass
  |  First Published: September 2006



Excellent conditions greeted anglers on the morning of the tournament, with a full moon illuminating Mount Warning, and the occasional cloud and drizzle drifting through the valley.

27 anglers gathered for the second Clarrie Hall Dam BASS Electric event of the year, with most competitors travelling from northern NSW and SEQ to fish the increasingly difficult bass fishery.

Plenty of anglers found schooled fish with the Ward brothers of Jonathon and Troy finding the best, with the pair securing first and third places respectively. Jesper Noisen caught fish throughout the morning for no keepers, with his second placed limit coming towards the end of the session.

Big Bass winner Wayne Beggs picked up the kicker fish of the event, claiming the prize winning fish in the upper reaches of the dam, after dropping a bunch of fish lower in the waterway. It was a last minute change in location gamble that paid off.

The event showcased one of the most picturesque waterways in NSW and with the ongoing support and work of the Tweed Shire Council, NSW Fisheries and the Australian Bass Association destined to make Clarrie Hall Dam one of the best bass fisheries available to anglers.
