The Catch
Bass (Australian)

Winter time often means picture postcard days at Clarrie Hall Dam. Today bright blue skies held the mountains and the lush green lilies that fringe the lake margins. The cooler water temperature at this time of year requires slower bait presentations to spark the interest of the bass. Adding plenty of scent to the lure and slowing down the retrieve is the key. Even ‘dead sticking soft plastic can work wonders, with very small movements triggering the ever watchful bass into striking. Right from the start Marie mastered this technique and connected with a number of fish throughout the day. Marie’s first bass ever was a very fat & healthy 40cm specimen. Well done and thanks for a great day!
