Team Yamaha wins Freshwater Masters

Team Yamaha emerged from the pack to take out the 2009/2010 Freshwater Fishing Masters at the last round of the competition at Lake Mulwala.

The successful pairing consisted of Yamaha’s Dan Power and co pilot Dave Shelton.

The Freshwater Fishing Masters is an exclusive invitational event that targets native freshwater fish over three rounds at different locations. Each round comprises of around 20 to 30 two-person teams chasing a targeted species. The competition adheres to a strict catch and release policy whereby all fish caught must be released in good health in order to be eligible for points.

Defending champions and tournament specialists Dave and Gaye Silva from Team Lowrance went into the last round with a 125 point advantage over the boys from Team Yamaha in second.

“It was always going to be a tough assignment,” said Dan Power.

“We were pleased with our results from the first two rounds but Dave and Gaye from team Lowrance were going to be hard to catch in the final. We even witnessed them land a big cod early in the day that would have put them well ahead of our score.”

The pressure was on and the two teams duelled fish for fish until the final seconds of the competition but when the water settled Team Yamaha came home to clinch the win by just 14 points. The points difference equates to just 14mm difference in the total length of the thirty scoring fish caught over the three events, an incredibly close score.

Dan Power also took out “Champion Angler” for the tournament. A greatachievement considering the calibre of anglers participating at theevent.
