Its a classic example. Second sounder shot looks more like a double rebound beam reading, sensitivity might be up abit much.

    All in all, thats still a good session, ice jigs!! Why?? no noise, small presentation...deadly on sulking bass to get a reaction.......did you try dropshotting??

    cheers Steve
    Thanks for the comments Steve

    Just for the record

    Same sensitivity ........ 100M apart
    1st photo ...... I pulled a fish within seconds of the photo being taken (the lure was in the water at the time of the photo) .......... the screen shot was pretty representative of the day

    Pressured fish for sure but I never tried dropshotting on the day

    Yeh Steve ..... still happy with the session - had some fun .... particularly with the lost fish

    Well done Chris, good report mate.

    It's just not fair.LOL.

    Cheers,

    A % of the bass school up every winter thinking they will spawn, doesn't happen without reaching saltwater water though. This year it seems the bulk of them have chosen that area for one reason or another, it's about 500mts Sth of where they were last year and 500mts Nth of where they were the year before. They will stay schooled in the general area until they work out they can't spawn then they'll split up, maybe about Sep - Oct. In that time they'll probably go hot & cold - break up a little, reform, sulk on the bottom ect ect, all depending on angling pressure. So mid week is best and avoid fishing a few days after comps.
    The Bass Bounty comp fished there last weekend and most guys hit the school, 1st sess the fishing was great, 2nd & 3rd sess it was a struggle.
    Chances are that school at spot X isn't the only school so it would pay to do some searching around the dam.

    Good luck on the weekend boys ...... because the fishing has got even tougher ( Gaz 9 bass , Me 8 bass) - no big fish & the schools are scattered & thin.
    Dont sleep in lads ....... as the best bite was very early (4 fish in 5 mins including a double first up) Attachment 49769
    Then the morning was a real hard slog
    Daryl got the best fish of the day @ 49cm - but he struggled too

    All up real real tough.

    So be out there fishing before sunrise

    Cheers

    Thanks Chris

    Spoke to Gaz this arvo just after you dropped him off and he said although the results were quite pleasing, it was still a comparatively tough slog to the cricket scores you boys were achieving.

    Still how nice to be on the water. Looks like Gaz is now a confirmed starter for the Muster so all good.....I have 1 deckie.

    We'll rock up either late Friday night for the Muster or sparrows on the Saturday and rock out either Monday or Tuesday....brownies dependant. Looking forward to sharing a few yarns again as always.

    Glenn looked like he knew what he was doing

    We were talking about looking south ........ I located a school near red rock the other day ........ unfortunately I had battery issues ( flat from a left on sounder over a couple of days ............ & never got the chance to put enough charge back into it ) - - -- DARYL to the rescue
