Jon Whincup's Year
From April 2017 we will be following Jon on a monthly basis. After winning two of the big competitions in 2016, the Maver Match This and Parkdean Masters, its only fitting for us here at Frenzee to report on his matches and big competitions that he participates in. We will be working on Video Supplments as well as written blogs and articles. Keep checking this section of the website for regular updates.
What better way to start this off with a blog of how Jon won the first qualifier for the Golden Reel Competition.
Jon reports on his 2nd week at White Acres on the Guru Festival, a tale of mixed fortunes.
This was the first of 2 festivals I was competing in at my favourite place in the world, White Acres, here's a rundown of how it went.
We met up with Jon before he headed off down to White Acres to find out how he goes about prepping for the festivals. Jon talks about the tackle he uses, bait limits, dealing with the draws and good and bad pegs, a great insight into Festival Prep.
Since qualifying for the Golden Reel on the very first qualifier at decoy lakes, I was raring to get started on the maver match this qualifiers, an event i was lucky enough to win last year.
After last years stellar year the big match qualifiers were soon up and running again, and the first one was a brand new competition run by Phil Briscoe called the golden reel, and as luck would have it the first one was at my local decoy lakes.
