It wasn’t looking good for the start of the Lake St Clair Bass Electric with strong southeasterly winds and 100mm of rain falling in the 24 hours prior.
Nevertheless, 13 keen anglers were patient as the session start was moved back 1.5 hours and the arena reduced to the Carrowbrook arm.
Only 13 legal bass were weighed in due to the miserable conditions. But Phillip Merrick took the honours with 2/2 for 1.59kg taken on TT Switch Blades and Jackalls in a timbered creek bed.
Second place went to Bass Electric regular Dave “Kiwi” Trinder with 2/2 for 1.57kg, Dave fished open banks with Jackalls.
Third place and Big Bass winner was Tony Catton. His only fish was taken on a black jointed Jitterbug weighing a healthy 1.45kg. Tony wished to thank his sponsor So Lo Prices for their support.
Better weather and a larger field of anglers, is anticipated for the next Bass Electric on Lake St Clair on August 9. – Justin Scott
