Hobie Fishing Words 10_11

Each competitor will fish from an identically rigged 2024 MIRAGE PRO ANGLER 14 WITH 360XR DRIVE TECHNOLOGY kayaks. The boats will be rigged with a Lowrance Elite FS™ with Active Imaging 3-in-1 fish finder which will allow an angler to navigate their surroundings, locate fish, find structure, determine water temperature, and much more.

Each fish finder will be mounted to the boat with a RAM fish finder mount that will provide adjustability and quick removal. The Hobie fish finder installation kit will power the Lowrance fish finder and includes a FPV lithium battery and charger.

The cargo area of the Hobie kayak (right behind the angler) is large and will store plenty of gear, and each angler’s boat will have an H-Crate storage system mounted in this area, to organize their gear. Hobie rod extenders will be mounted in the molded-in rod holders, which elevates rods and reels to keep them drier and further away from the water’s surface.

Tackle boxes will not be provided for competitors, so each person will need to bring their own.
A provided measuring board will be used for scoring fish. Fish will be laid out on the measuring board along with the angler’s specific daily token, a photo will then be taken for submission to the Tourney X app: See rules.

Each angler will wear a provided Hobie inflatable PFD, which is a lightweight chassis, the user will feel that they are barely wearing a life jacket at all. This is a manually deployed PFD, so the angler is required to pull a tab on the bottom of the jacket, if they need to use the floatation device.

Hobie kayak carts will be used to transport the kayaks from the water’s edge. Several carts will be on hand for competitors to share.
