Hobie Fishing News
The annual Bad News Regatta will be raced off Currumbin Beach, Gold Coast on the 9th, 10th and 11th of June. A memorial for the late Bob ‘Bad News’ Hughes who was well known and respected in the Hobie® Cat scene both in Australia and abroad. His contribution to Hobie sailing is remembered at this event.
We recommended this Regatta for those that love a laugh and competitive sailing (and maybe surfing waves and cleaning up the occasional surfer!)
The newly redesigned Hobie Livewell V2 sports a fresh color scheme, modern lines and more built-in features than ever before. This livewell is plug-and-play with most* Hobie kayaks and includes all the same built-in functionality of the Livewell XL.
Currently, we have a sale on our remaining Livewell V1 stock now priced at $429.95 (limited stock, save $50). For those in Pro Anglers, we do have a couple of used Livewell XL’s available for $450… Just in time for the Hobie Kayak round on the Gold Coast.
Call us or drop into store for more details.
It’s that time of year again when the Hobie Kayak Bream series hits the spectacular waterways of the Gold Coast and (fingers crossed) some sunny and warm weather!
Mitchell Park is the place to be come June 2nd and 3rd; with fishing options aplenty, the vast Gold Coast waterways offer up plenty of options for anglers hoping to fill their bags with some nice healthy bream.
With just under a month to go, it’s time to put the ‘call out’ to those thinking of competing in the two day event. There’s a couple of weeks left to get your early bird entries in and if you are a first-timer, entry is free!

We are overstocked with good quality used Hobie® kayaks and demo Mirage Eclipses!
Every Saturday from 9am – 2pm during the months of May and June our used kayaks will be on display in our car park. With Hobie Mirage kayaks starting from $950, they have been checked, detailed and are fully prepared for a new home.
All Mirage kayaks have seats, MirageDrive and paddle. Some have more accessories…Mirage Eclipses come with Handlebars and MirageDrive.
The used kayaks/Eclipse are located at our Sunshine Coast store (Birtinya) only.
You can find most of these kayaks on our website at Used Hobies and we look forward to seeing you soon!
A reminder to our customers that we will be closed ANZAC Day, Wednesday the 25th April.
We will resume normal trading hours Thursday 26th April.
Now in its 10th season, the Hobie Kayak Bream Series has just finished up its second event for 2018. With Forster being a renowned bream arena, many Queenslanders make their way down each year to tough it out with the brute Forster bream. This year was no exception, with about a dozen of our customers trying their luck at securing a podium position. Unfortunately it was not to be for the QLD battalion with NSW dominating the top three spots…Needless to say, it’s great to see most ended up in the top half of a 75 strong field!
While we wait until June to get our round up here on the Gold Coast, it is a good time to think about whether you might be interested in having a go at tournament kayak fishing…with a ‘first timer’ entry; you can experience the Bream Series for yourself – at no cost! With a prize pack up for grabs for bringing home the biggest two day weight; you’ve got nothing to lose and a prize pack to gain.
To find out more on the Bream Series, head over to http://www.hobiefishing.com.au or contact either shop. The fun awaits!
