Afternoon Bass Session


Recommended Posts

I've been hanging to hit the water again since I got home from Glenbawn last week, and finally Thursday arvo the weather was ok and the planets were aligned. So myself and Stuball (stew) decided we'd give the Georges river in the Kentlyn area a try. Stuball had never caught Bass before and I hadnt been down to this section of the river since last summer but was confident that we could put him on to his first Aussie Bass.

It only took a couple of casts until Stew was onto a healthy LITTLE fish that tryed to eat a lure not much smaller than itself. It was only a small one but Stew was pleased with himself (a Bass is a Bass!!!) The fish weren't really "on" but we managed half a dozen fish ranging from tiny to pretty respectable. Best fish of the arvo was a nice Bass of at least 35cm that gently sipped my river 2 sea cicada from the surface just before dark.

I think stew has the bug now...so we'll be back for another try in the near future. Here are a couple of pics.

Great to see a good population of small fish... signs of a healthy waterway. You're a bad man though for infecting someone new with the Bass addiction... just think of all the trouble you've probably caused once all the new lures start filling Stew's tackle boxes. :biggrin2:

Cheers, Slinky
