The 2015 Jackall Australian Yellowbelly Championships Grand Final has been run and won. There were 263 caught and released with an average length of 50cm
1st place – Loomzy’s Fish N Fix (Jamie Loomes and Paul Browne)
Their result came by vertically rolling trees with black Gulps . Key to their successful strategy was targeting sunken trees not visible above water. They found these trees had received less fishing pressure throughout pre-fish and the tournament weekend.
2nd place – Team Gottcha (Michael Collison, Mark McDonald and Brad Collison)
They also found the most consistent way to target fish was to fish tight to the trees with gulps.
3rd place – Water Rats (Graham Ford, John Morley and Will Morley)
This team had a different strategy for targeting trees. They used Jackall Mask Vibes, TN60’s and Ecogear ZX Blades. The technique was to cast them out and use a very slow hop retrieve keeping the lures close to the bottom.
Windamere turned on some great weather for the weekend but very hot. A lot of great sportsmanship shown by the many Anglers that stuck around for the presentation.To see full results head to the Leaderboards page
