Big lizards dominate Basin Classic

AWESOME summer weather conditions greeted the 41 teams that contested the 2012 Flathead Classic on St Georges Basin on the NSW South Coast over the weekend.

With the start in glassed out conditions – perfect for targeting big dusky flathead – it only took until around 7:30am before the heaviest flathead was weighed in by Troy Parsons. Measuring 950mm in length and weighing 6.820kg Parsons’ fish proved too good for the rest of the field, despite other quality flathead weighed in throughout the day.
