A total of 90 breamin’ teams had a shot at the first BETS event for 2014 on the Hawkesbury River. Team Duo Lures/Costa Sunglasses (Gavin Joyce and Nick Geogiadis) slow rolled hard baits off the sloppier edges of Cowan Creek and found quality fish hanging close to edge willing to follow the lure out and give it a crack.
Despite fishing just 4lb leader in the rocky territory the pair only lost two fish during the session and were able to present five slab-sided specimens for weighing. Looking impressive in the weigh bag, the fish were even more impressive on the scales; they weighed in at 4.83kg, amongst them a 1.29kg corker that did no harm to the cause.
This awesome bag of fish earned Gavin and Nick the opening first place of the Series and a cheque for $4200. Full results on www.betsbream.com.au - BETS.
