Trinder Takes it Home
  |  First Published: September 2008

The forecast of cold and windy weather and the increase in water levels saw Lake St Clair fish at its best in a long time. And first place getter, David Trinder, used a very different approach to compile his bag of two fish for 3.06kg.

Trinder used a Marzz Timber Jack hardbody lure for those bass cruising the shallow weed edges. Once he’d got his bag limit and the wind had started to get up, he decided to move out to target the school fish. Using a less than conventional approach, Trinder used a Bassday popper weighted with a running bullet sinker and jigged the popper in the their face to entice a strike.

Second place went to ABT regular David Mudd, who used a smoke yellow core slider rigged on a 1/2oz jighead. Muddy would cast his slider to the edges and slowly roll them back to the boat. Most strikes would come in the first 2-3m off the retrieve.

Muddy also claimed the prize for the big bass with a fish that weight 1.88kg. You could here him all over the dam when it came to the boat. –Wayne Parry
