LAST month I wrote about my pre-fish for the B.A.S.S. Australia Nation round to be held at Lake Boondooma. The pre-fish certainly paid off because I ended up in third place, which I was absolutely pumped about. So in this article I’m going to run you through how I went about the tournament. On the official pre-fish day I headed …

Cast the jerkbait up to the weed edge and crank it down a couple of winds, pause it and then begin a series of twitches as you wind.

Lately I’ve been catching my best-quality fish suspended in deep water. They have been sitting in the thermocline at 4.5-6m.

We were keen to make the …

BP bass

Once you have a combo similar to this, head up the arms and cast as close to the spindly trees as you can, letting the lure sink for three to five seconds before starting a slow roll. Make sure your drag is done up tight so the bass can’t ditch you in the timber without a hard fight. Once you …
