Wilson claims the Native Watercraft B.A.S.S. Australia Nation Kayak Championship after Lake Somerset shut down the bite and the fishing got extremely tough into the 3rd session of the event.

Wilson who had a substantial lead didn’t need to step to the stage to claim his first Native Watercraft B.A.S.S. Australia Nation Kayak Championship and is now set to travel to the U.S.A. to compete in the Bassmaster Open tournament.

In 2nd place Alan Britcliffe who is the current AOY Kayak Champion took home a Garmin sounder, cash and huge number of prizes from the sponsorship group.

Rounding out the top 3 and fishing in his first Queensland impoundment from bass and his first B.A.S.S. Australia Nation Championship Ethan Hugo who is only 16 years old had a great tournament and also claimed the Tonic Big Bass of the event.
