Hobie Fishing is pleased to announce season number four of the Daiwa Hobie Kayak Bream Series!
For 2012 we have added a few new rounds and the series will visit some new arenas, to test Australia’s leading bream kayak experts, in the chase for the Lowrance Kayak Angler of the Year.
The profile of the sport of kayak fishing will be enhanced by teaming up with Australia’s leading bream power boat tournaments. This will add to the excitement and bring kayak fishing to the next level.
We have teamed up with the Gamakatsu Teams Series for the North Coast Fishing Bonanza in Ballina (NSW) and three other rounds in Forster (NSW), the Clarence (NSW) and Tweed Rivers (NSW). Squidgie Southern Bream Series will host three rounds, the Georges River (NSW), St Georges Basin (NSW) and Mallacoota (Vic). ABT will host all other rounds of the series including the Forster Fishing Carnival (NSW), Glenelg (SA), Swan River (WA), Marlo (Vic), Swan River (Tas), Mandurah (WA), Bribie Island (Qld), Mallacoota (Vic) and Narrabeen Lake (NSW)
The series will also see the launch of qualifying rounds for the 2nd Hobie Kayak Fishing Worlds to be held in the USA.
“The inaugural Daiwa Hobie World Kayak Fishing Championships set the tone in 2011. Now, 2012 offers kayakers even more opportunity to get involved. There are AFC spots, World Championship slots and plenty of cash and prizes to be earned this season and now is a better time than ever to start competing”, Steve Morgan ABT Director.
“If you thought 2011 was impressive then kayak season 2012 will blow your mind. More events, more venues, more options and greater exposure are combining to drive kayak breaming to the forefront of the sports fishing industry. I, like many on the kayaking scene can’t wait for the new season to start. It’s going to be an exciting year”, Simon Goldsmith ABT Tournament Director.
“Thanks to Hobie, placegetters in three of the 2012 Squidgie Southern Bream Series (SSBS) rounds will qualify for Daiwa Hobie Kayak Bream Series, grand final spots. Another incredible innovation is that one round will give anglers the opportunity, to qualify, to compete in the Hobie Kayak Fishing World Championships in the USA. In 2012 kayak anglers will have much more on offer than ever before”, said Jim Barrie (SSBS) Director.
“Gamakatsu Teams Series is very excited to be involved in the 2012 Hobie Kayak Bream Series. Weigh-ins will become a better spectacle and the bar for both kayak and power boat anglers will be raised. Our involvement will increase the exposure of kayak fishing. For anglers wanting to get into competitive fishing, but can’t find another team member to fish power boats, kayaks present an economical way for individuals to participate in tournaments around the country. Great prizes and places in the Hobie Kayak Bream Series Grand Final are another fantastic drawcard,” Michael Starkey Director Frogleys Offshore 2012, new venues, new rules and perhaps a new winner!
The 2012 Daiwa Hobie Kayak Bream Series is supported by Daiwa Australia, Berkley/Pure Fishing Australia, Atomic Lures/Frogleys Offshore, Hogs Breath Café, ABT, Lowrance, Squidgies/Shimano Australia.
