Fish Arrow grabs 2nd Place at Maroon Event

ABT Hobie Kayak Bass Qualifier – Maroon Dam Qld
The last round qualifying round of the Daiwa Hobie Bass Kayak Series held at Maroon Dam about an hour and a half from Brisbane. Originally I thought that the round was a tad bit far to drive on my own, roughly around 2,500km round trip. I was spewing that I had missed my opportunities in the closer bass rounds in NSW. When the opportunity arose to travel up to the round with a trailer load of kayaks I quickly jumped aboard.
We arrived in Brisbane on the Thursday night and went round for a BBQ provided by our sponsor Robert Searing. After raiding some of Rob’s shelves of a couple of lures we made our way to Maroon Dam to set up camp.
Damiki & Pontoon 21 Combo take out 2nd Place
First round of the southern series had arrived, very excited and ready to go we were both rigged up with Damiki D grubs in our favorite colour Motor Oil Red. Along with that we had our other rods set up with our go to 'big fish lures' the slow sinking Bully Boos in metallic jungle perch and metallic stripes AYU.

"Preparing for this particular event is quite simple, a tray of Pontoon 21 Crack Jacks 48mm in both MR and DR a selection jigheads, I like to use 1/12th 1/0 mainly and a selection of 3 inch Damiki Armour Shads in various colours, they all work bounced on and off the reef edges.
Michael Maas takes 2nd Place at GCSFC - Dash 4 Cash
Field Staff Michael Maas and fishing partner Chris Maas pulled in a solid 3.74kilo bag at the gold coast for get 2nd place at the weekends Dash 4 Cash event. Below is Michaels take on the event.
"Here's a short insight to the tackle and tactics used in the recent Gold Coast Teams event where we placed 2nd weighing a good Gold Coast bag of 3.74kg. Running from the Southport Seaway we headed north to our local fishing waters of the Jumpinpin. We prefer to fish the nature structure in the deeper water when chasing bream in the winter months.
After finding plenty of fish in our prefish weeks before the comp in water deeps ranging from 3 to 9 metres we decided this is the areas we would target on comp day.
