Hobie Worlds start in a week
« on: November 28, 2016, 10:55:40 am »
A quick check of the Hobie Worlds website ( http://hobiefishingworlds.com/ ) shows the first day of competition to be a week from today. I would imagine our two Canadian competitors, Dave Poole and Tim Percy, should be leaving for Louisiana pretty soon and I just want to wish you both the best of luck - make us proud, boys! Karen will have to cheer for all of us and we'll be glued to the internet watching the results as they come in.

Started today, saw on Facebook that both Dave and Tim caught some small reds and trout. Now they just need to figure out the bigger ones.

A few bull reds being caught I see. Man a fish like this would be awesome to catch, even in a pro angler this fish would take you for a sleigh ride.



Quite the fancy measuring boards too.

Results from day 1 are up.

http://hobiefishingworlds.com/rhino-rack-day-one-results/

Was a tough day with tons of wind, Tim is in 19th and Dave in 37th.

3 bulls(big redfish) caught yesterday so all it takes is one of them and a nice trout to make up some ground.

Another tough day for everyone thanks to the conditions. Still wide open at this rate.

Final standings.

http://hobiefishingworlds.com/rhino-rack-final-results/

Seems a few more guys were catching fish today but the leaders held onto their spots. The winner Steve Lessard was the only angler able to catch both a redfish and seatrout each day so consistency was the key on these tougher fishing days.

Tim got another redfish so finished middle of the pack at 28th. Dave had another tough day and ended up 45th.

Even with the tough times looks like the boys had a good time and looked like an awesome tournament to be part of.

Yeah nice boards , available? and what do they retail for ?
Shouldn't post pics. without shooter's permission, Did Julie take that shot ?
Tough conditions, good representation by Dave and Tim.
Bet Flounder Guru ( Jantzen Miller ) would have got a flounder.
Yeah tough audience when on "world" stage.

I don't think the boards are available, I believe they were made specifically for the tournament. They are an awesome size and design though.

Julie didn't take that particular picture, her and Bob Findlay from Australia were the photographers and I am not even sure if he took that one, may have been taken by someone that was with Daniel when he caught it.

The YakAttack boards are big and heavy.  Very functional and they were not for sale at the event. 

It was a great event even with the difficult conditions.

It truly was an excellent event.  The cold front and accompanying hard north winds made for an extreme event!  The water temp dropped almost 15 degrees f over the 3 days.  The north wind increased the current as it blew the water out of the marsh to the gulf of Mexico.  On day one I was one of the few to make it back against the current to the "big boy launch"  The current was so strong that a secondary takeout had to be set up and the Pro Anglers had to be carried (mostly by Rich) up and over the rocks after being towed through the thick mud, while avoiding the razor sharp oysters.  The beauty and flavour of this area cannot be put into words or caught in a photo.  I caught about 26 fish over the 5 days, which included 4 species, unfortunately I didn't get to experience a "Cajun sleigh" ride this time.  I will be fishing hard at next years BCC for another chance.  If anyone is heading down for some redfish action I did purchase a little extra tackle that I would be glad to share ;)
