Nepean Bass

Mat Corra

Recommended Posts

Hi Raiders

Last Saturday i was invited by Marty (Pops Punt ) for a fish at nepean river. We hit the ramp running at 5am and found a couple of likley looking spots and a few cast's later my line straightend an i was onto my first ever bass.

A good fight took place before it was netted.


In all my excitment i forgot to weigh the fish before releasing it. A new spot was chosen and using the same lure i was on again and i would be very suprised if the residence of penrith didnt hear me but this fish was 50cm +. As i eased the fish towards the boat to be netted it took one last dive and to my disapointment my not had let go on the quick release clip. :05:

I am now hooked on this type of fishing and cant wait till the next trip.

I would like to thank Pops Punt for a great day one i will remember for a long time. Also thanks to Watto for his lure advise

Cheers Mat

Congratulations on your first Bass.

I scored my first Bass only a month ago. Don't the buggers go for it when hooked. Scored them on spinners. What bait/lure did you use?
