Jonathan Chen takes a 950 grams lead into the final session of season 4 and the Native Watercraft B.A.S.S. Australia Kayak Championship as he weighs a massive 4.68kg bag in the second session. Chen also holds down the Atomic big bass of the event, bringing in a 2.78kg solid Somerset giant.

In second place Greg Rigby is confident he can push Chen to the limits and has a total of 7.64kg with Felippe Gapski rounding out the top 3 sitting on 7.37kg.

With a bunch of anglers ready to pounce including Tyson Rowan and John Noble not far behind, and with some genuine 3kg plus bass swimming around, the leaders will need to bring their A grade to the lake in the morning session to maintain their position.

Tune in at 11:00am on Championship Sunday to see who will take out the Native Watercraft Championship and win the trip to the U.S.A. to fish in a B.A.S.S. sanctioned event.
