The past weekend saw round 3 of the Casino Outdoors and Disposal BASS Electric Series round three held at Maroon Dam.
Dale from Wellington Point Marine attended the BASS Electric event and writes.
It was an early start to the morning getting up at 2am to travel to the dam. Arriving at 4am and getting the gear and boat ready in the freezing cold was a struggle. Once we arrived, signed on and been briefed we started the event at 6:45am.
We did a pre-fish 2 weeks earlier with great success, so we decided to stick to the game plan and headed to the back of the dam and fish the shallows. We arrived and fish a shallow weed bed of about 0.8m deep. Rolling soft plastics brought these fish unstuck early with my partner wade walker getting the first fish in the boat.
Not long after I hit my first fish also, this was a relief to see they were still in the same spot as last week and still fishing the same way. Within the next 2 hours we had our bags and upgraded 2-3 times each.
12:00pm came and we decided to head back confident with our bags. The field of 65 anglers all arrived back by the weigh in time of 1:30pm. Most anglers caught fish t weigh in but after all had weighed in the result came out that I (Dale) had won and taken not only 1st place but big bass of the weekend at 915G.
This was a great experience for myself being my first bass electrics series. Thanks to Wellington Point Marine, Frogleys offshore, wade walker, and the casino outdoors and disposal team as well as the ABT team for making these great events possible.
