Wade Walker currently leads the field after session one of the Okuma North Pine Kayak Open with a cracking 2.59kg limit and also holds down the Tonic Eyewear Big Bass of the event with an anchor 1.70kg bass and will be looking to go wire to wire in the 3rd round of the Native Watercraft Kayak Series.

Walker ended his session early and had confidence that he was on the right bass, and will be looking to extend his lead from the field each session. NSW angler Callum Sivewright has also put himself in the box position with a cracking limit of 2.52kg and David Barwise rounds out the top 3.

Sivewright will be looking for consistancy for the weekend.

With a lot of fish landed in the first session, we feel that the anglers will be dialling in more as the tournament progresses and we may see larger number of bass hit the scales in the 2 session tomorrow.

Barwise is loving the North Pine impoundment.

Tune in tomorrow as we bring you a 10:30am and 4pm final weigh-in live from the amazing North Pine Dam location.
