SOMERSET SLAM

B.A.S.S. AUSTRALIA NATION PRO SEASON 6
Lake Somerset, Queensland. Australia
08/03/2019 to 10/03/2019

The 2nd round of Season 6 of the B.A.S.S. Australia Nation Series takes us to Queensland & Lake Somerset for the 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 weigh station, and it seems they are getting large and more consitant.

Last season we saw Dave Young win on fly in the pro division and Jayden Fox claim the Co-Angler ranks with the largest speicmen got weighed by Bob Schmahl.

The first round on the Queensland impoundments is always a massive turn out and with the AOY Top 12 scheduled for the end of the year, this will be a great way to cement your spot towards the top.
