Australian Kayak fishing Championships Exmouth WA Aug 2 /18

Postby Brendon » Sun Mar 11, 2018 5:08 pm

Posting this on behalf of the organisers . I will be attending as a competitor

In short there will be an Offshore Kayak Fishing Competition held based at the Exmouth Game Club Fishing over 4 days of fishing in August of 2018.

The major prize is qualifying for the World Kayak Fishing Championships (nothing to do with the Hobie Series) at the Los Buzos Resort in Panama which has a long standing Kayak fishing guide service based out of it and amazing fishing for a large range of offshore species including the amazing Rooster Fish , Sailfish ,Wahoo , yellow fin tuna amongst many more check this video out https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SLSLFKOklvI

The prize includes use of fully rigged Hobie Kayaks, accomadation ,meals transfers and air fare from AustraliaYvonne to Panama (and free beer!) First Prize for the World championships $10 000 USD !

The Australian qualifier will be based around Exmouth which has some of the best Kayak fishing in Australia with every popular tropical species you could name available and with Exmouth being on a cape you have 270 degrees of options from inside the ningaloo reef , outside the reef and inside the gulf .
The comp will not require game fishing rules to be followed so no line classes ,leader lengths etc . basically follow WA fisheries reg and comp regs

So for the East Coast crew who may want to attend Hobie Kayaks will be available to hire for the event and the organisers are keen to help assist east coast yakkers to be able to attend .

I will be driving up with my BT50 Dual cab with roof racks and a Yak trailer so I might be able to help get a kayak or two from Perth to Exmouth and back and may have a spot for a co driver .
All the official details here .

HMMmmm, Been promising myself a return trip to Exmouth for a five years. This could be the go.

Is anyone else interested in a group ticket from the East Coast? TripAdivsor has had some excellent deals recently, $560 Rtn, Sydney/Perth...

Having arm shoulder surgery in May, so August could be just right. :grin: :grin: :grin:

Will speak to the wife!

The comp will be on the east coast next year with a major sponsor coming on board .
The WA round did not happen due to lack of numbers . Damian the organiser is looking for 2 east coast based guys to return their entry fees to them .
