Dave Seaman returns with more Australian Wild River Bass action. He and his team start off at Wild Rivers Bass Lodge on the Macleay River in northern New South Wales. They're back on the water in their kayaks, reaching those places other anglers can't reach. After a very early morning start the fish seem more lively than Dave whose demeanour isn't lifted when it starts pouring with rain, but these guys know what they're doing and are great at explaining their tactics and thinking. The magic hour is during the transition from dusk to darkness, this is when the 50+cm fish start coming out to play. Dave explains that some nights can be fairly quiet with just a fish or two, but here, having successfully tracked them down, the guys have a night to remember with big fish after big fish.
The team drive further north to the gorge on the Clarence River. Here they don't need the kayaks as they are rock hopping around the pools beside the rapids. Conditions aren't ideal because the river is up and running hard and the water still murky with plenty of froth. The bass don't seem to mind though as they seem unable to resist a lure drawn across the surface just under the foam.
