Fishing Rules

To create even more interest and excitement in the 2016 Hobie Kayak Bream Series, as well as, the usual open scoring system with its amazing prize payouts, Hobie Fishing has introduced new divisions in all tournaments for the coming season.


  • Youth (16 – under 21yrs)
  • Women’s
  • Masters (60 – 64yrs)
  • Grand Masters (65 and over)

There must be a minimum of three anglers entered in a division for a winner to be declared and a sponsor prize pack to be awarded. An angler must have caught and weighed-in a minimum of one legal fish to be declared the divisional winner. All divisional entrants are still eligible to win prize payouts and prize packs in the main field of anglers.

If you are entering a Hobie Kayak Bream Series tournament for the first time you have the option of a to have a First Timer Entry. The requirement of being an ABT member waivered and you will NOT be required to pay an entry fee.

“First Timer Entrants”, are not eligible for prizes and your scores will not be recorded. As a new angler to the series you may still register with ABT and pay your entry fee, and be eligible, like all other entrants, for prize pool payouts and sponsor prize packs.

Your entry form and payment shall be completed by Friday the week before the event (7 days) to avoid the late payment penalty.
