Open Limits bass trophy results

5 Herons took part in this year's open Limits bass trophy with just two boats launching. The 18mph SW wind made conditions a little choppy but with both boats staying close to shore, it was never really a problem. 
All reported catches of bass with K. Grove also netting an eel in excess of 2lbs from black rock. B. Morris came closest to weighing in with a bass that was literally a few mm short of the required 42cm, fishing the end of Hampton rocks. 
Unfortunately though, after five hours of fishing, none of the competitors could muster a sizeable fish so for this year the trophy goes un-won. 

This Bass was just undersized
