Dave Young Claims the Slam!

In what turned out to be a tournament full of leader board movement, Dave Young remained supreme in what was one of the toughest test we have had on Berkley Series for years and walks away with the Garmin Somerset Slam title, and over $4,000.00 worth of cash and prizes for his weekends effort.

Dave Young Claims the Slam!

In what turned out to be a tournament full of leader board movement, Dave Young remained supreme in what was one of the toughest test we have had on Berkley Series for years and walks away with the Garmin Somerset Slam title, and over $4,000.00 worth of cash and prizes for his weekends effort.

Young with his winning bag.

Young was one of the few anglers to recognise that he needed to pattern change after a seriously tough start to the tournament and came up with his trump card to secure and title against one of the best fields on record. With all the big names featuring in the Garmin Slam, Young now sets his sights to later in the year and has some decision making in regrds of top 12 and AOY contention.

O'Dowd is doing great.

In 2nd place Michael O’Dowd managed a sensational tournament and took home well over $2,000.00 worth of cash and prizes for his effort, and in only his 2nd pro tournament of his career has announced himself as contender for future events.

Munro is back!

Rounding out the top 3 was Callum Munro who has had a 3-year break and slipped straight back into contention for a power house of Australian tournament angling. Munro also was the only angler to secure a full limit for the weekend and may be thinking that he left some of his fish still out there. Resting his primary area all weekend he decided to stay there all day today and landed over 40 fish for the session, and left them biting.

Fox claims his maiden title.

Carlyle likes the season ending locations

In the co-angler ranks Jayden Fox also claimed his maiden B.A.S.S. win by securing consistent fish all weekend. The quiet, humble angler landed a solid 4/6 limit of 4.32kg and piped out session one and two leader Craig Hanlon. Rounding out the top 3 was Andrew Carlyle who is also looking for to strong finish towards the back half of the season.

Bob with the largest bass from the weekend.

Bob Schmahl managed the Tonic Big Bass for the event managing in a massive 2.47kg Somerset beast and took home a $270 pair of Tonic Eyewear.

With a great turn out and seriously testing conditions the AOY leader baord may be shaken up after this event, stay tuned as we bring you all the media including interviews, blow to blow information in the full report and some great media from the best tournament photographers in Australia.
