Joe Franco wins the Blackwood River ABT Event
WA Field Staffer Joe Franco takes out the Daiwa-Hobie Kayak BREAM Series - Blackwood River with a comfortable victory. Here is Joe's write up of the event
"What a whirlwind weekend, racing to finish work early in order to try get a look at the chosen arena for the WA round of the ABT qualifier. It wasn't to be, I arrived in Augusta at 4pm and settled into my cabin swapping yarns with fellow yak anglers before it was time to get to the briefing.
Well my anticipation was high as with any event, the coffee prepared by the Getaway Outdoors crew went down a treat and before I knew it everyone was peddling and paddling like mad to try get to their chosen destination.

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.

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.
