Berkley Glenbawn Challenge

Berkley B.A.S.S. Australia Series
Lake Glenbawn, NSW Australia
02/02/2018 to 04/02/2018

The deep water bite on Lake Glenbawn is back, and in the first week of February you will have the opportunity to claim one of the most prestigious bass events in Australia held every season, the Glenbawn Challenge.

With generally the largest turn out of the year descending onto Lake Glenbawn, this tournament will attract anglers from up to 5 states and you have an opportunity to claim the title, take down a huge cash and prize pool and cement your place in the B.A.S.S. Australia Nation Championship held in the last week of August in NSW.

With past winners like Dean Silvester, Mitchell Cone, Dave Lane, and many more, this one is setup to give anglers a maximum amount of exposure to help boost their profiles, while competing against the best bass anglers the country has on offer.

Deep bite specialist Dave Lane takes out the 2015 Lake Glenbawn Challenge.
