Basstasstic Australian Bass fishing Team Championship Grand Final Results.
On the 2nd and 3rd of December angler teams who qualified attended the Basstasstic Bass fishing X-FACTOR Australian Bass teams Championship held at Somerset Dam. 21 teams in total turned up to try and take home the Tidal of the Australian bass Fishing Team. With some of the best anglers in country at the event we all knew it was going to be a great event. On the Friday night the anglers were sold off in a Calcutta and some big money was outlaid on teams they though would get the biggest bags in total length. The draw was done to see who fished off against who on day one. Saturday session was hot and in session one seen some good fish measured -in. But its all about your best two bass overall in two sessions on day one to see who fishes in the cash pool and who is knocked out into the prize pool. Session two some very good fish were measured-in Steve Kanowski bought in a whopping 528 mm bass to the fork along with many more cracking sized bass from other teams. Saturday night teams were told who was in cash pool and who missed out and went into the Prize pool, there were very good prizes to be won and two of each prize so no team misses out in the end. Day Two everyone starts fresh in both sections apart from the 3 cash prizes for the best bags of 4 fish overall for weekend. Many fish were caught and some big ones on the Sunday session as the results show. All anglers had a great weekend at Somerset.
