Hobie Fishing World Championship kicks off

THE second annual Hobie Fishing World Championship is currently underway in Austin, Texas, and runs from November 4-9, 2012.

Forty three teams from 13 countries are competing at the prestigious event for the chance to be crowned World Champion. All competitors will fish for freshwater bass from identically rigged Hobie Mirage Pro Angler kayaks provided by Hobie Cat Company and outfitted with Lowrance Electronics and Ram Mounting Systems.

The goal of the event is to continue building a platform for Hobie fishing competition in an environment embracing a common passion for fishing that overrides language and cultural barriers.

The tournament is a traditional CPR (Catch, Photograph and Release) format in which each competitor will enter his or her three best lengths in aggregate each day. The angler with the highest cumulative length over the three day period will be crowned Champion. Prizes will also be awarded to the top team representatives.

Australia is represented at the event by a 12-man contingent consisting of: Scott Baker, Josh Carpenter, Justing Dingwall, Steve Fields, Dave Hedge, Jason Lambert, Scott Lovig, Tim Maas, Jason Meech, Matt Petrie, Richard Somerton and Kevin Winchester.
