Anglers travelled to Boondooma dam on the 23rd and 24th f May to fish in the round 3 Basstasstic tournaments bass fishing qualifier. It was good to see allot of new faces t this tournament round. Anglers came from Monto in North to Stanthorpe in south and Blackwater in west Brisbane in east. It all made for a excellent group of anglers for great weekend of fishing. Condistitions on day one was cold and windy and rumours from the Friday night briefing that it was going to be a tough fish did nothing for the anglers on Saturday . In saying that tell fishing anglers things are tough and they step up a gear in attitude. The areas anglers were targeting was the junction and the Stuart river and it was good to see at the first measure-in good sized fish. Ok not allot of fish but the size of some of these Boondooma bass were really impressive. Locals Terry Allwood and his wife Kimberley Allwood showed they had some knowledge of were the bass were for session one. Terry took lead pole position in session one with a score of 817 points, closely followed by Brisbane angler Jamie Facer. Jamie had also found good fish with a bag total of 800 points. Kimberley Allwood was also in race with a score of 674 points. However the rest of the field of anglers fell short and many only measuring one bass. Session two in afternoon was still going to tough with the win not backing off. Again the Allwood’s showed how it could be done and Terry was in a good position with two good bass measuring 900 point total. Kimberley not far behind with a 853 point total. This session seen allot of fish measured-in and this put a smile on many anglers faces. One of those anglers was Patrick Conduit of Brisbane he caught two good bass with a bag score of 907 points and gave him second place in session two. Terry and Kimberley Allwood went into session three with number one and number two pole positions . Terry in front and Kimberley not far behind in points. The lures that were catching fish on day one were Evergreen Blades in AYU colour Smak Mini copper spinner baits Smak ice jigs and the new Smako's Spinner baits. The fish were coming mainly out of the junction area pelican point and bay area in Boyne arm. Day two cool and a slit wind better then day two. Anglers all had learned off where the fish were mainly coming from so it was about how quick they got their to find fish. Day two was a tough fish, but better then first session on day one. The third session was won by Mathew Langford of Kingaroy with two good bass and bag total of 831 points. Patrick Conduit caught a good bag of 828 points.
