Justin Evans of Mailtand has landed his maiden title in the Berkley Glenbawn Challenge and defeated a great field, as Lake Glenbawn gave up a 475 bass in the 2nd round of the Berkley B.A.S.S. Australia Nation Series.

Evans was pumped to take out his maiden win.

Evans took home $3,400 in cash and Berkley Pro Trophy with a massive 2.30kg final session bag using the ever-popular vertical Gulping technique on Glenbawn this weekend. After 3 consistent and solid sessions where he featured towards the front of the field, Evans over shadowed the entire field as he presented the largest sack of session 3 and walked away with the title.

Lane is always at the top on Glenbawn.

In second place Dave Lane also used the vertical Gulping technique and managed the Tonic Eyewear Big Bass of the round with a giant 1.51kg NSW monster and took home a $1,500 cheque, Berkley Trophy and the pair of Tonic Eyewear.

Ferguson is AOY focused and this result will help a lot.

Rounding out the top 3 was Mark Ferguson who has some great history on Glenbawn, Ferguson used a combination of skirted jigs with Berkley Gulp trailers to temp the deep fish to bite through-out the weekend.

Ley takes out his first co-angler title.

In the Co-Angler division, Cameron Ley claimed a title in very tight field and took home $770 cash a Samurai Rod and a massive Berkley Prize pack with Garmin handheld GPS unit inside.

Jones has bounced back after Lismore.

In second place Cameron Jones was only 50 grams behind, while Jake Schwerin managed to round out the top 3 in the co’s.

Schwerin was very close this weekend.

Evans win is proof that the pro/am style events breed quality anglers and is the 2nd pro in 2 events that have won their maiden events this season.

Tune in this week as we bring you all the finer details on how Evans and the place getters managed to put huge numbers of bass in the boats in the Berkley Glenbawn Challenge.
