On Sunday, the participating anglers managed to catch four fish, with Willie Sowden (one fish at 2.840kg), Richard Grant (one fish at 2.538kg), and Johan Coetzee (one fish at 1.053kg) taking up the top three spots. Alec Williams caught the biggest bass of the day, weighing in at 3.029kg.
Bian Coertzen won the junior’s category.
Tournament director Richard Grant, congratulated the participants who endured challenging conditions. “Most anglers slept over and braved the freezing night with temperatures as low as -4 degrees. Well done to all the participants.”
