REPORT: Fishing World round of the Southern Bream Series

A HOT and windy day lay ahead for 68 boating teams and 21 Kayakers on the renowned tough fishery of the Shoalhaven River and its tributaries for the Fishing World Round Two of the 2016 Atomic Southern Bream Series.

As the teams departed in turbulent waters some made their way out to the heads looking to score some big rock crunching, ocean going models while others headed straight for the racks with plenty of spare leader in their bags to seek out those oyster munching rack dwellers. The remainder of the field headed up river to try their luck on the windy banks and deeper drop offs.

Mother nature took her toll with quite a few early retirements due to illness and a strong North-Easterly that prevailed for most of the day, making the Hobie BBQ even more appreciated. But, as always, those at the top of their game found the fish with some fantastic bags coming across the scales and nearly half of the field catching their limit.

In the Boating division there was a tie for first place with equal bags of 3.47kg for Sally Bacon and Simon Sczepaniak from Team Ecogear/Dragon, and Jay Rook and Brendon McNeil from Team 13 Fishing, leaving third place to be taken out by Garry King & Shaun Johnson from Team Salt n Fresh.


In the Kayak division Scott Carmody of Team Fish Ten20 took out first place with a bag of 1.42kg with Luke Kay from team Pro Lure/Sailing Scene taking out second and Jason Reid taking out third from team Damiki.

Sally Bacon of Team Ecogear/Dragon also took out the Austackle Big Bream prize in the boating division with a nice Shoalhaven cruncher of 1.01kg, while Joshua Richards of team Lureholic took out the prize in the kayaks with a nice fish of 0.990kg.

In the chase for the Ecogear Rookie of the Year title Andrew Moore & James Koski of Team Triton took out first place in the boating division with Joshua Richards from Lureholic taking out the kayaks.

With the Shimano Round 3 at Mallacoota only a couple of weeks away Team Bass n Chips and team Hobie Lowrance are locked in a tight battle for the lead of the Watersnake Boating Team of the Year. While Luke Kay from Pro Lure/Sailing Scene currently holds a commanding lead in the race for the Totally Immersed Watersports Kayak Angler of the Year Title. Team Yamaha Motor Finance and Team Cast Mag are battling it out in the boating Ecogear Rookie of the Year competition while Peter Christensen currently holds a small lead in the kayaks.
