Berkley St. Clair Kayak AOY Championship

Native Watercraft Kayak Series 2
Lake St. Clair, New South Wales. Australia
10/08/2018 to 12/08/2018

One of the larger kayak venues on the calendar, Lake St Clair is setup to be an absolute slug fest come August with one angler walking away with the Angler of the Year title in the centrally located impoundment.

Lake St Clair offers a vast array of fishing techniques and often gives up huge numbers of bass, and the fish fight as hard as anywhere possible.

Last season Jonathan Chen took home the title in what was an ultra-tough and tight event on Lake Moogerah, this year we give the NSW anglers the home water advantage and look forward in seeing a fantastic turn out on the lake.

One of the most scenic locations in Australian Bass fishing, this is a location that B.A.S.S. Australia worked closely with Berkley to produce the A Bass Life video with Luke Draper. Found here.

Great fishing, great company, great prizes and a great location, what more can a tournament angler ask for.

 

Jonathan Chen had a stellar year claiming the AOY and Championship titles.
