Now that the dust has settled, we want to say a big thank you to all those who attended the Hobie® Kayak Bream Series at Mitchell Park on Gold Coast Broadwater on the 22nd/23rd July. It was great to see familiar faces out on the water having fun and competing. With a Queensland record breaking field of 51 anglers taking to the water in sunny, mid 20°s weather – the backdrop was set for a excellent two-day competition.
Day one saw almost all anglers weigh in a four fish bag, with most bags coming in around 1.60kg to 2.20kg. Day two was just as successful with plenty of healthy bream weighed-in to keep things interesting. Unfortunately for the Queenslanders, the Southerners were too good to match – securing all three podium spots. The best of the QLDers were Stephen Maas and Scott Sandilands who both finished in the top 10.
Mal and Chris have recently returned home from the Hobie Worlds in Holland where they sailed in the Wildcat division. We will let Mal recuperate this week and i’ll be sure to get a full trip report from him for next week, i’m sure there will be a good story (or two) from that!
As always, have a Hobie week!
