Keitech St. Clair Classic

Berkley B.A.S.S. Australia Series
Lake St. Clair, New South Wales. Australia
22/06/2018 to 24/06/2018

The St Clair Classic is back and it this time of the year the one big thing on anglers minds is shallow water plastics and catching huge numbers of fish. Tie your Keitech plastics on and hit the banks, so you can cash in on the rewards of cash and prizes plus your last chance to secure NSW AOY points.

Last season Dane Radosevic broke through for his maiden victory and this season we are scheduled at nearly the exact same time, giving the anglers a great opportunity to research and develop the right technique for this location.

In the past Alan McNamara has dominated this event fishing top water baits early, before moving to the edges, will this season be the same as previous?

One thing is for sure, the lakes proximity to Sydney allows big numbers of anglers to opportunity to take on the best shallow water anglers in the country, which evaluates to big exposure and big prizes.

Get in fast to secure  an early start so you don’t miss your favourite bank!

Radosevic on St Clair is always in the hunt!

If you are looking to make the Atomic B.A.S.S. Australia Nation Championship, you will need to get these valuable points, as St Clair is known for giving up large numbers of bass.

 

Jye Clayden nearly snatched the win in his first ever pro tournament.
