The Motackle $10,000.00 AOY Invitational group stage has been completed and we had some blow out results and super tight finishes, with the top 12 now being cut to 6, we now zero the weights and all the anglers left head out against completely different competitors at 6am tomorrow.

Group AMatthew Langford pushed ahead and landed 3 quality bass in the 2nd session while Michael “Paddy” O’Dowd struggled and could trouble the score board. This result allowed Langford a smooth transition into the semi-final stage where his will be taking on the form angler of Jonno Bale.

Group B – Like Group A, Garry Harman had a tough session and didn’t score any bass in the 2nd session, while Jonno Bale crushed the bass and had one of the largest full limits of the day. Jonno is a cool customer that just keeps catching bass, and look out as he has another scalp in his sights.

Group C –  Cody Haynes and Graham Ford also crushed the bass through the day, Ford actually weighed the largest sack of session one, but with only 4 small bass hitting the well in session 2 he opened the door to Haynes. Haynes needed over 6kgs to stay in the event, and managed just over the amount to step up into the semi-final stage.

Group D Mick Johnson ended up with over 14kgs for the 2 sessions and took out the group against his good mate by a significant amount against Greg Mitchell. Johnson ended up with the largest 2 session limit and is poised to go into the semi-final round s one of the hot favourites for the Motackle $10,000.00 AOY Invitational.

Group E Nick Anderson and Mark Ferguson just couldn’t dial in over the first day of the event, and with Ferguson heading out with a slender lead it was always going to be a open group that anyone could win. Anderson came home with the only bass of the group and snatched the win, that sees him head into the semi-final.

Group FDiamond Dave Welfare has a substantial lead after session one, and hooked into some solid fish straight away in the 2nd session, unfortunately for Mott he didn’t get onto a pattern in the first session which saw him start the 2nd session from behind.

Tune in tomorrow as bring you more Live Bass Score updates, and the Live Show and weigh-ins as the field all go back to zero and we see some new head to head battles.
