Day 2 of the Yamashita Squid series was in doubt for a start.

The Yamashita Squid Series Fishing Fever Round 1 at Hastings in Victoria day 2 was in doubt of a start this morning with winds gusting well above 30knots as a straight North, the decision was left to the field and the overwhelming majority was a start so a start it was, the Gan Craft flag was horizontal the whole time and is still lashing with the wind. We wish all teams a safe return for weigh in, squid fishing in wind this hard is a tough game so the results will be very interesting at the 1430 weigh in this afternoon, was a hairy night sitting with the equipment during some of the squalls that came through during the night. As some would know from our last event the Australian Egi Tournaments Invitational, we lost 2 big marquees to the wind and I ended up swimming in my underwear at 0500 in the morning in the middle of the Queenscliff Harbor, I was not letting this happen again nor would I subject my teams to seeing me in my underwear ever again. For
those who were unable to get to yesterdays weigh in this is our little setup without the computers, scales, electronics and audio equipment. For those considering coming to the weigh in today there has been a time change to 1445 due to the late start because of competitor conference about winds.


  1. a priveledge and a pleasure to compete in this Comp well done to all concerned

  2. We were glad to have you along who ever you were and a big thanks for being involved in the first ever live weigh and release tournament any where in the world.
