This year sees the Gamakatsu Teams Series (GTS) expand their event to new waters due to its popularity last year.
Gamakatsu will be running events at the Gold Coast to make a total of five events that can qualify you for the Gamakatsu Teams Series Grand Final. That’s right, just by fishing the GTS events, the top 10 qualify at each event ending up with the top 50 anglers of the series to compete for the largest teams event cash prize in Australia.
At the Grand Final they will have a chance to compete for $7,500 in cash for first place with second and third also getting good money.
With that sort of cash on offer on top of the standard prizes each round, that's right the prize packs are still available in each round as well as the random giveaway packs, the Gamakatsu Teams competition looks set for another big season.
With all these prizes on offer, why not give it a go? Look at the Team of the Series last year: They had never competed in a tournament before and walked away with over $2000 worth of prizes without winning an event!
Events are timed and scheduled as follows:
Clarence River Iluka - 26 October 2008
Richmond River Ballina - 30 November 2008
Gold Coast (North) - 18 January 2009
Tweed River - 22 February 2009
