Hobie ABT Grand Final UPDATE

Post by Steve Fields » Thu May 13, 2010 4:30 pm

Hobie ABT Grand Final Kayaks Ready for the event.

The Hobie Factory has been busy this week putting together over 50 new Hobie Pro Angler kayaks complete with Live wells and ready to fish for this weekend’s Hobie ABT Grand Final.
The Hobie kayaks will be used in the 2nd Hobie/ABT Grand Final to be held at Forster NSW on 15 - 16 May.

This year's event is supported by:

• Daiwa Fishing Australia
• Pure Fishing - Berkley
• JML - Ecogear
• Frogleys Offshore - Atomic Lures
• Hogs Breath Cafe
• ABT

ABT Tournament Director Simon Goldsmith, says " The Hobie ABT kayak series is the only nationwide kayak series that allows kayak breamers to scratch their tournament itch and strive to be the best on a national stage. The Grand Final at Forster is where this all takes place".

Hobie's Steve Fields said, "I have been looking forward to this event all year and we have representatives from each state as well as some of the regulars from the ABT Bream series. The supplied boat format levels out the playing field and allows for interstate fisho's to attend.

I would also like to give a BIG THANK you to Daiwa, Berkley, JML , Frogleys Offshore, Hogs Breath Café and the ABT for the assistance they have given us to make this series a success throughout the year".

Hobie ABT Kayak Grand Final – Official Pre-Fish Day - May 14, 2010

Sunny but windy (and cold) conditions greeted competitors today on the foreshore of the Foster Boat Harbour for the official pre-fish,kayak briefing and kayak allocation.
The normal “fish tales” started as everyone made their way back from the Wallis Lake system. Stories of “3 kilo bags” to “only a few small ones” were the norm of the afternoon chat (BS).

EVENT FORMATS
This year’s series featured one and two day events. In two day events anglers could fish either/both of the tournament days, however, their best bag of the two days will count towards their final results.
Each state hosted multiple events (QLD, NSW, & VIC) used its last round as the State Title deciding round. State Title events featured a two-day bag and offered GF qualification spots to the top five. Non-state title events offered GF qualification spots to the top three.

BIG BREAM
A Hogs Breath sponsored $250 big bream prize will be awarded each day of the competition and will be known as the Boss Hog.

The Hobie ABT BREAM Kayak Series Grand Final runs from the 15-16th May with SESSION TIMES from 7.00am to 2.00pm each day.

BRIEFING LOCATION will be at 6.50am, Forster Boat Harbour Foreshore with the WEIGH IN SITE at the Forster Boat Harbour Foreshore, something not to miss.
