Garmin Somerset Slam

Berkley B.A.S.S. Australia Series
Lake Somerset, Queensland. Australia
16/03/2018 to 18/03/2018

The 3rd round of Season 5 of the B.A.S.S. Australia Nation Series takes us to Lake Somerset for the Garmin Somerset Slam, where massive bass are lined up in the first Queensland round of the series.

Heading up north you will need to upgrade your tackle, increase your lure size and prepare to meet the giants of Australian Bass, as every year anglers bring 3kg plus sizes specimens to the scales.

Last season we saw an incredible result as Patrick Conduit took home the title with his family at his side in the pro division and Nick Anderson caught a monster bass to take out the co-angler division.

With 2 state AOY titles up for grabs and the lake fishing as good as it ever has, this will be the time to step up and take on the best in the business on this iconic waterway.

 

Patrick Conduit caught consistent bags to take the win.

WE ARE RUNNING THIS EVENT FROM THE KIRKLEIGH. - Lake Somerset Holiday Park.
