Rounding out the top 3 is Bass Mafia/Strike King consisting of Ethan Farrel and Jon Millard who seem to be the only team who have fished away from the pack and might have a late charge up their sleeve.

Millard isn't far away in third.

The Garmin Big Barra of the event is currently being held by the Archer Bros who hooked up to over 12 large barra today, but only managed to land 4. The largest going just over the magic metre mark at 101cm’s, and they will be keen to get back to their spot in the morning and try and make it happen.

Tune in tomorrow as we bring you the live presentation from the Gracemere Hotel at around 3pm.
