Yamashita Squid Series 2011 Shimano Sydney Harbour Round Results

Day one kick off
After an unfortunate chain of events we lost 4 teams the day before competition but the event still went ahead with some close results.
Day 1 saw the teams all heading different directions early in the piece with teams using various areas and fishing differing techniques. Both Yamashita and Yamashita 2 took advantage of an early weigh in so as not to risk loosing their catch from early in the morning, this ended up assisting Yamashita 2 with their lead going into Day 2. All teams landed their bag of 3 squid for weight recording.

Key allocation
Day 2 was not so much different with and teams scattered to similar areas as day 1 with the exception of Team Sunline who traveled up past the Harbour Bridge to try something different, this risk sadly did not pay off with the teams fishing the southern reaches of the harbour landing their bags in fairly quick succession with the opportunity of upgrades through out the morning.
