Wivenhoe Dam B.A.S.S. Nation Wrap up

This was one of the most enjoyable yet toughest bass tournaments i have fished in a long time. knowing the event was going to be tough i fished it as if it was a complete new venue and barely went to the areas i would typically fish when targetting bass in wivenhoe.

Prefish day 1

Plan was to cancel out or prove the uper reaches of the dam, travelling all the way to the top we (Jaimen Tunstall and I) worked our way back down the dam hitting different types of structure in varying depths trying to crack a pattern. The fishing was fun, catching yellowbelly, catfish and the occasional bass on almost every lure put next to a snag. Only catching one bass we decided we wouldnt make the trek back up on the second prefish day.

Prefish day 2

Having a tough day 1 the plan of attack with this day was to locate and target suspended bass down near billies bay, platypus cliffs area. We managed only one bass although it was a good fish we were unable to repeat it and the bite in between was tough and slow. Important point that needs mentioning, i would never have been able to navigate effectively and as efficiently as i did without the Insight Genesis Map on my sounder, utilising the map i was quickly able to decipher which snags were in water deep enough to hold fish and which weren't.
