2023 Kayak Round 1 – Results

27 Anglers hit the water just before 7am today for the opening round of the 2023 Getaway Outdoors Cockburn/Kelmscott WA Bream Classics Kayak Series. With some great weather the Collie River produced some hard fighting bream for some while showing others just how tough it can be! This time of year the bream fight incredibly hard, matched with the deep timber the Collie RIver has there were plenty of stories of big ones that got away.

Alex Griesdorf has taken out the win with one of only 2 full limits of 3 fish going 1.730kg

TT Lures was the major sponsor for this round, as always anglers are encouraged to check out some of the new products on offer including the new Headlockz Finesse Painted Jigheads which many anglers were using.
