Thanks 2can and the EBOP team and sponsors for a great comp.
My fishing skills sucked but had a good time fishing and socialising with Allpom, Scottyboy, Dazlec, and Schecter who outfished us all :y: Omaio Bay was beautiful.

A big thank you to EBOP Kayak Fishing Club for putting on a great comp and all the sponsors for putting up great prizes . I had blast and fished down the coast , caught some nice fish and caught up with some fellow yak fishers that I only see at this comp once a year . It turns out that this year even if you didn't catch a fish worthy of a prize , every single competitor got a spot prize which was great . So well done EBOP and all the sponsors . See ya all next year when the dust settles ! ;)

Wicked guys, big thanks to the organisers and sponsors for putting together a awesome competition, was perfect weather out on the water and got a good feed, was a added bonus getting a few prizes in the team section and was stoked for the old boy who entered the comp this year for the first time and ended up walking away with the heaviest snapper

Bring on next year!
