Round 6 of their Southern Bream Series (SBS) held by Basin Lure and Fly Anglers Inc was staged at St Georges Basin on Sunday 24th August, in what only could be described as perfect weather conditions, especially after all of the bad weather that had preceeded the event, the Round was proudly sponsored by FISHING WORLD.
The event was supported by 63 Boating Teams and 30 Kayak Anglers which was a great turn out.

I would again like to say a big thank you to all those that competed and showed their continued support for this great Series, as it is only getting bigger and better as every Round passes and the positive feedback that is filtering back is greatly appreciated.

The final winner in the Boating section was Team FG Blades/Fireline Exceed with Fred Green & Lindon Thompson with a 5/5 bag totalling 3.52kg, second went to the Team Father & Son with John Galea & Issac Galea with a 5/5 bag totalling 3.40kg, third went to Team Stealth Blades with Peter Cook & Phil Cook with a 5/5 bag totalling 3.40kg, Fourth went to Team Attack Apparel with Logan Wilson & Dylan Shepherd with a 5/5 bag totalling 3.19kg and fifth with Team Compleat Angler Batemans Bay/Shimano with Jason Mayberry & Terry Parmenter with a 5/5 bag totally 3.14kg.

In the boating section only 22 Teams achieved their full bag of 5 fish in what was described as a tough bite and there where a total of 178 fish for a combined weight of 91.39kg for 126 anglers.
The Hobie Big Bream prize was taken out by young Issac Galea with a solid 1.30kg fish, which was the highlight of the event, especially as young Isaac is only 8 yrs old and has been a regular competitor along with his Dad John throughout the Series this year.
