Australia’s feisty black bream may be in a bit of trouble come October 30, 2013. Angler’s fishing from identically rigged Hobie Mirage Pro Angler 14’s propelled by Hobie’s patented MirageDrive system and fitted with Lowrance electronics and Ram® Mounting Systems will be on their trail.
Anglers from around the world will be competing in the Third Annual Hobie® Fishing World Championship as they converge on the Bemm and Snowy Rivers in Victoria, Australia, October 30-November 3, 2013. The event is presented by Daiwa and hosted by Hobie Cat® Australasia. All countries will compete for the chance to crown one of their own as World Champion.
“The goal of the event is to continue building a platform for Hobie fishing competition in an environment embracing a common passion for fishing. It’s also about building international camaraderie that overrides language and cultural barriers,” commented Doug Skidmore, president of Hobie Cat Company.
Australia is not just about kangaroos, shrimp on the barbie or beer – it is also very much about world-class fishing. Live weigh-ins will take place on each of the three days of competition with anglers weighing three fish per day. This is tough and challenging water for fishing. Defending champions Scotty Baker (2011) and Marty Mood (2012) will have to be at their best game if they want to take another crown. Can they do it or is there another champion on the sidelines? November 3 will tell the story.
Qualifying opportunities will be announced in the coming weeks.
