After two hard core days of battle in the Motackle $10,000.00 AOY Invitational we now have the final three anglers that will head into Championship Sunday, were they now have a five-hour session to prove that they are worthy of the big cheque.

Jonno Bale, Cody Haynes & Diamond Dave Welfare have won their way through after taking out 2 rounds of rivals, and now have a one session shot on Lake Somerset tomorrow morning.

Group AJonno Bale took out Matthew Langford with consistent captures in both sessions, and has now possibly become the favourite leading into the event. Bale had the 2nd largest sack of the day, but is definitely on the solid bass and has produced well in the mornings each day.

Group B Cody Haynes dispatched Mick Johnson in what was a very tough group, both anglers were catching good bass and had the same limit, but Haynes came up trumps again in a come from behind victory.

Group C – We saw Diamond Dave Welfare take out the current Rookie of the Year, Nick Anderson with the largest sack of day 2, Anderson found some real quality early but let Welfare get off to a big start. Will Welfare carry momentum of this afternoon into the morning, if so he may be unstoppable.

With changing conditions these anglers really proved why they are regarded towards the top anglers in the country, they put quality bass in the wells through the thickest of rains and cold fronts, and are always dialled in to the movements. 

Will Somerset give up it riches tomorrow? We have an improving forecast, so with luck we hope to see an absolute slug fest, where these 3 champion anglers will battle it out for the Motackle $10,000.00 AOY supremacy.
