Matthew Langford currently leads the Garmin Somerset Slam in the half way stop of the Berkley Series after a tough bite period in the first session. With only a 3rd of the pro angler making it to the scales, Langford has a solid lead over new comer Peter Wilson with Mick Johnson rounding out the top 3.

Langford leads the slam.

Wilson also holds down the Tonic Big Bass of the tournament with a 1.99kg specimen hitting the scales, and will be looking to capitalise on his large fish location.

Wilson holds the big bass.

Mick Johnson will be looking to be consistant.

In the co-angler division Craig Hanlon is streaking the field as he brought in the largest sack of the event a 3.77kg bag and has a 2.04kg lead over 2nd place Brett Hyde. Rounding out the top 3 is Dane Pryce who isn’t far behind.

Hanlon is in charge.

Hanlon took home the session one Gangster Lures prize pack with that impressive bag and will be looking to try and back it up with a similar effort.

Hyde is looking to cut the gap.

Pryce rounds out the top 3.

Somerset is a big fish location and even though the leaders have a quality lead, this event is still very open to absolutely any angler who can make the right adjustment and find the perfect recipe to make the big girls bite.

Tune in this afternoon at 5pm as we bring you the afternoon session of the Garmin Somerset Slam presented by Berkley Fishing.
