Huskisson New South Wales – December 12, 2017.
The Hobie Fishing Team has released the FINAL tournament calendar for the 2018 Hobie Kayak Bream Series, and the 10-year anniversary of the premier national series has some exceptional innovations included.
In 2018 the tournament tour will venture to new and exciting venues as well as revisiting some of Australia’s favourite tournament waterways.
Anglers competing in Bream Series 10 will no longer be required to have an ABT membership. Instead, an angler after entering online for their first event of the year will be issued with a Hobie Club membership number, and a specially designed Hobie Club card will be posted to the address included in the angler’s entry. The Hobie Club membership will be free of charge to all competing anglers.
The series is again supported by Daiwa, Atomic, Lowrance, Rhino-Rack, Strike Pro, TT Lures, JML Anglers Alliance, Power-Pole, Mortgage Corp and Pro Lure. Two fantastic new sponsors, Lurefans from China, who have supported the Hobie Fishing World Championship over the past two years and Australia’s sensational lure company Cranka.
The Divisions introduced in 2016 will continue in our 10-year anniversary series. We hope to see a lot more, young anglers, women and keen older fishos join this welcoming, friendly and exciting national series. Don’t forget that if you are a first-time competitor you still enter online, come along and get your first taste of tournament fishing and pay no entry fee. However, if you choose the no payment option you will not be eligible for the large cash payouts on offer. If, on the other hand, you choose to pay the entry fee you will be eligible for any cash prize and sponsor prize packs offered in the Open Division.
To assist eager anglers from across the country to start competing early in the season, rather than having to wait for the Hobie circuit to work its way closer to your favourite or accessible locations, the calendar structure has changed. In previous years, the events calendar would focus on one region e.g. East Gippsland, where we’d do three events and then move to another region. This year back to back tournaments in a particular region will not happen. After a tournament is completed, the next Series 10 event will be held at a more distant location, with the possibility of returning to a region later in the calendar.
The Hobie Kayak Bream Series 10 Australian Championship is also undergoing a major time change. The big news is that the championship will now be held in February of the following year, and will be the opening event of each season. The location for the 2018-19 Australian Championship will be announced later in the season.
Get ready for another sensational year on the Hobie kayak fishing tournament scene with enough rounds and heaps of variety to keep everyone happy. Spread the events calendar around and let’s get new anglers involved. They’ll bring with them more competition, more challenges, greater prizemoney and fantastic social opportunities, making Australia’s ultimate kayak fishing series even better.
Subject to change due to weather and permit requirements. While Hobie takes every care to confirm dates we reserve the right alter the calendar and will not be held responsible for changes outside of our control.
