Will Lee claimed back-to-back Queensland State Title wins with victory in the 11th round of the Daiwa-Hobie Kayak BREAM Series on Queensland’s Gold Coast. Compiling an 8/8 fish, 4.11kg limit to secure the win came from behind on the last day (11th) to once again show he’s the man to catch anytime the kayak bream tour comes to Queensland.
With light winds on day one, Lee’s plan of attack was to head to the main body of the Nerang River in search of stronger currents and active fish. Once in the Nerang, Lee targeted fish holding tight to the pontoons with a Z-Man 2” Brubz in pumpkinseed rigged on a TT HWS 1/20oz jighead and smeared in Pro-Cure mullet scent.
Lee would cast his lure up current of the structure and allow the bait to drift deep under the structure. Filling his limit by 9.30am he then changed tack and targeted the larger Gold Coast bream holding on the bridges during the slack tide, this proved fruitful for Lee, upgrading twice and keeping him in the hunt on day two.
With his limit in the well, Lee worked his way back to the weigh in with the tide, during his travels he was able to sight better quality fish holding on the pontoons near the weigh-in site.
