Sporty’s Fishing consisting of Jono Bale & Ben Biggs have taken out the first round of the Tabs Boats Team Series in a wire to wire performance. The Tonic Eyewear BP Team Open produced a massive amount of fish as the catch rates were up and fishing was off the chart on Bjelke Petersen, Bale & Biggs capitalised on their experience here, and used burning retrieves with Berkley Gulp Minnow Grubs to catch over 100 fish for the 2 sessions.

In second place was 2 Dams, One Destination with Matthew Langford & Corey Goldie who managed some impressive fish against a talented field, and rounding out the top 3 was the Bass Demons who also claimed the Berkley Big Bass of the event with a 1.48kg specimen landed in the 2nd session.

Langford (Left) & Goldie are always in contention in the South Burnett.

The leader board was ultra-tight with teams like Big Rude/Rockstar came storming home, but Bale and Biggs had a solid enough lead to have a convincing win in the Tonic Team Round.

Bezzina (Left) & Saint had a blast chasing down the leaders.
