Hey Wayne. I have a sneaky feeling it could be 'look out 2009/2010 here we come!'
Bring it on!

ABT Launches 2009/10 Hobie Kayak BREAM Tour

Building on the momentum of a successful inaugural BREAM Kayak series, Hobie Kayaks is proud to announce the schedule for the 2009/2010 Hobie BREAM Kayak Tour.What started as a small series in Queensland and NSW has rapidly expanded into a tour which incorporates events in WA, SA, Victoria, Tasmania, NSW and Queensland.

Although competitors fish in their own craft for the qualifying events, the Tour will culminate in the ABT Hobie BREAM Kayak Grand Final, where all qualifying competitors will fish from identical, factory supplied Hobie kayaks - complete with recirculating livewells - to create a truly level playing field.

ABT Director, Steve Morgan, identified kayak tournaments as an area of significant growth. "Kayak tournament fishing is an inexpensive, accessible and healthy way to satisfy an angler's competitive urge. There's no telling how far kayak tournament fishing can take you. For instance, the 2009 BREAM Kayak Champion, Victorian Scott Lovig, earned a place on this year's Australian Fishing Championships (AFC) TV show," he said.

Hobie's Steve Fields in even more excited about what the season will bring. "The timing of this series is just right. The momentum from the last series coupled with the excitement of the successful launch of the tournament-designed Hobie Pro Angler will ensure that this series is successful."

ABT BREAM Kayak events are unique in that anglers catch bream on lures and then keep their three, biggest, legal fish to present to the weighmaster at the end of the fishing session. Anglers get to see first hand the quality of the bream their fellow competitors land.

Competitors already familiar with the current BREAM Kayak tournament format will be interested to know the following modifications for the 2009/10 season.

2009/10 CHANGES
Anglers will now fish for a limit of three bream instead of two.

Two day events will feature a new format where an angler can fish either/both of the tournament days, however, their best bag of the two they can weigh will count towards the final results, Angler of the Year (AOY) points and Grand Final qualification. Combination of the two days' results will be used for Ranking Points only.

Each state's events will culminate in a State Titles, where a larger number of Grand Final qualifying spots are up for grabs. State Titles are decided on a cumulative two-day bag.

Several events will be run in close proximity to ABT BREAM events, so that kayakers and power boaters can interact at weigh-ins and share knowledge and techniques. At some venues, competitors will fish the same body of water and at others adjacent water bodies will be used.

We've squeezed all the Kayak events into the hectic ABT schedule with tournaments in all states. Bass electrics are fine to fish from your yak, there are already several anglers who do this and have qualified for the convention.

Feb 6-7 Westlakes SA 2xday
How does the 2 day - 1 day bag concept work :?: so does this mean you can fish either day, or you can fish both days, if you donut the first day can try again and try to present a bag on the second?????

Fishing the Bass electrics out of my kayak sounds great, saves on the cost of yet another rig. What would the minister for war and finance say? One question please, Bass electric rules stipulate a 60 ltr livewell, the Hobie livewell holds at best 23 ltr. Is there a compromise?, as I can't see the Outback fitting a converted 60 ltr esky. What do the other guys do for a livewell in their kayaks?

Buns,

You're fine to use whatever will keep 2 x bass alive in the BASS Electrics. 60L is for 4 x bass and 2 x anglers.

Thanks Steve,
Looking forward to the 2010 Bass season - hope the reaction bite is better than what it was in 2009. The Bass dams are finally starting to look 'dam' good.

in the bass electrics i use a 25ltr esky with an airator and have had 2 bass in it for 5 hours.
as long as you change the water every now and then you wont have a problem.
admitadly where i fish you dont get many over 300 so you might need a bigger well if there bigger fish.
