Four-fish haul wins BASS Open for Adrian and Aaron

IF YOU'RE looking for info on the Richmond River bass scene, you could do a lot worse than hang around Ballina Marineland to see if someone lets something slip.

Marineland staffer Adrian Melchior and partner Aaron Swanson won the inaugural Edge Rods Richmond River BASS Open teams event last weekend at Coraki with a great four-fish live weigh-in totalling 5.03kg.

Matt Gibson and Jake Stewart from Dobyns Rods/Ballina Marineland were second with 3.4kg, and Marineland proprietor Ken Fitzgibbon and mate Aiden Kane took third just 40g behind.
