VALLEYHILL BASS ELECTRIC OPEN at Wyaralong Dam 12th 13th October 2019


The Valleyhill Bass Electric open was held for the first time at Wyaralong Dam and what an event it was. Big entry fee gave back big payouts and prizes we’re I was happy to take away 5th place.

Pre fish Day

Having previously won an event on this lake I headed straight to the same areas I had previously fished although these areas no longer had any water on them as the lake had dropped. I searched some deeper trees and found that the fish were suspended in 15ft in and around the trees. I managed A few fish through the day and had a plan ready for comp day.

Day 1

At the start of day 1 we were faced with strong wind and heavy rain so I headed half way up the lake to my first area we’re I managed to land my first legal straight away. I stuck with this area for around 1 hour with no more luck so I decided to make the big run right up the back of the lake to an area I found the day before. Upon arrival I hooked up straight away and managed to fill out my 5 fish limit of the one tree. The key to success was throwing lv-500 and slow rolling them through the suspended fish around the timber. Once I filled my limit o moved back down the lake we’re I managed to land 2 nice upgrades. I finished the first day in 3rd place.

Day 2

At the start of day 2 the weather conditions were complete opposite with bright sun and blue sky’s it was going to be a tuff bite. I made the 1hour 10min trip to we’re I filled my limit the day before but the bite was a lot tougher as it took 2hours to land my first bass. I stuck there for another 30mins with no more fish so decided I needed to move to fill my limit. I returned to an area I upgraded the day before and changed my approach by targeting the individual suspended fish with blades. This proves vital as I filled my limit almost immediately. Although they were small fish it was enough for me to hang onto a top 5 finish.
