The 2012 Telstra Shop Kawana Waters Classic was held from February 2-5 with the competition going right down to the wire.
Congratulations to the team on Kamikaze for their hard fought win. With blue marlin being tagged right through to the dying hours of the second day by several boats (including a lot that were dropped), it was anyone’s game.
Special mention must go to Andrew Yeh and Peter Bain for finishing second place overall and Champion Boat 7m and Under for their 2 blue marlin after fishing 40+ miles out in a 5.2m plate centre console, in trying conditions. Third place went to the Matt Wallace’s ever-reliable Fish Whisperer skippered by Ross Martin. In the 7m and Under Boat category is was Yeh and Bain on No Name to win followed by Out Quoting and the boys on Dragon Lady, in their very first tournament.
As usual a great time was had by all at the SCGFC base at the Kawana Waters Hotel with 23 boats entering. The official results are below.
