Round 4 of the Queensland Teams Series (QTS) sponsored by Sporty’s Fishing was run on the Gold Coast over the first weekend in October.
With a forecast for heavy rain, 24 Anglers made the effort to battle the elements as they all headed off from the Budd’s Beach boat ramp. Thankfully the heavy rain stayed away for most of the day.
Finishing 3rd place with 2.21kg was team Bonzo, Gary Middleton. We caught up with Gary to see how he went. With only one fish in the well at 10 o’clock, Gary thought all hope was lost. He managed to get his bag and then a few upgrades. Gary fished the Nerang river and finally found some fish that were biting on Zipbaits and Berkley Crabbies, He caught plenty of fish but struggled to land the big fish getting busted 5 times.
Finishing 2nd place with 2.31kg was last round winner team John Siggs. This time fishing with his son, John and Matthew fished in the main river from Cronin Island to the Bundall Bridge, using Cranka Crabs and Berkley plastics he said it was definitely a tough day as they only caught about a dozen fish.
Finishing 1st place with a 2.64kg bag and Stuart Robinson fishing as team Ranger. Stuart started his day hitting the pontoons around the Isle of Capri boat ramp skipping in some Ecogearaquas. He had a small bag by 7.30am and headed up past the Casino to find some upgrades. He tried a few different things but they couldn’t resist the Aqua. He caught plenty of fish and managed to find a couple of decent upgrades.
Stuart also took out big bream with a 0.77kg fish.
November 10th will be the QTS final round for the year run from the Gold Coast. Look for Queensland Team Series on Facebook and get along to this great 100% payback social tournament series. Everyone is welcome.
