Denis Metzdorf wins Forster ABT comp
Rnd 11 Forster Super Series ABT kayak comp May 4th and 5th 2013
My last Bream comp or Bream fishing in general was the 2012 ABT Hobie Bream grand final held at Bemm River in Victoria so it had been over six months since my last ‘fix’ and I was having some serious withdrawal symptoms. The day had finally arrived and the long nine hour drive south was underway as we discussed our ideas/ tactics for the comp. The prefish ban for this event had stretched to the Friday night so after a quick chat to the event organisers we decided on a short drive north to the Manning River, mainly to target some Flathead but to just release some excitement before Saturday morning and day one of the comp. We all caught plenty of fish including Bream, Flathead, Whitting and Luderick on an array of lures but the stand out for me was the Damiki DTSCO crank.
Surface Action WA style
WA Field staffer Corey House made this awesome flick on a recent trip. He shows just how effective the Pontoon 21 Loco Perrito is.
Bemm River Victory for Jonathan Chen
ACT based Field Staffer Jonathan Chen held on to take his first win of the 2013 Daiwa Hobie Kayak BREAM Series with an impressive 6/6 fish for 5.28kg. Below is a quick summary of our the weekend panned out
ABT Kayak Comp - Bemm River Vic 16-17 February 2013
Took the Friday off work which meant an early start from Canberra 4am start so I could get down to Marlo for a relaxing fish and determine roughly what lures the bream were chewing on.
NEW COLOURS Added to the Napjaru & DTSCO range
We have recently expanded our colour range of the popular Napjaru lipless crankbaits by adding 4 great colours. In addition , our best selling 40mm DTSCO crank has also had an additional colour added , being the Green Goblin colour which we know will be a hit with the bass fishos as well as the bream anglers.
Using the Greedy Guts for Mangrove Jacks
The Greedy Guts 66mm and 77mm are ideal lures for Mangrove Jacks. Using a slow retrieve with pauses and twitches of the rod tip is a surefire way to get onto some of these hard fighting fish.
Fishing Photography Tips
Fishing and photographs go hand in hand, fishermen have been taking pictures of where they have been, what they have seen and more importantly what they have caught since cameras were invented. Taking great pictures though, the kind that instantly takes you back in your mind to that exact moment, takes a bit of practise and a bit of knowledge. We have put together a small selection of tips that can help you capture that moment when that fish of a lifetime comes along.
