Sebastian Mazur from the Mikado Fishing Team became a winner of the spin fishing Grand Prix of Poland.
Between 26-28 of April, in town of Brenna, the second edition of the bank spin fishing Grand Prix of Poland 2019 was held. Competition was organized by the PAA Katowice district, while Mikado became a general sponsor of the event.
Brennica river, that played a role of the tournaments’ arena, is filled with multiple stone thresholds, deeper holes and shallower rocky bits intersected with areas of calm water. Fish the most frequently caught during the contest were brown trout; ides, chubs and perches were present too, though.
For sake of the tournament, the river has been divided into four sectors, each of them divided into 30 posts where 15 participants competed. In two days eight, 45 minutes long rounds were played. Each round has been initiated by contestants in a different order. Precision, effectiveness and pace of the decision making were among key factors here. A number of marvellous fish were caught, noted down while still in the landing net and released back to the water. Contestants were not allowed to touch the fish, that at the same time could not be placed on a ground – these were the countermeasures aiming to protect the animals.
For every fish caught a contestant would get 1 point. The biggest number of 37 fish caught in one round belongs to Janusz Panak. The biggest total number of fish caught during the contest (129 pieces) has been scored by Andrzej Lipiński, who at the same time, with 4 sector points, finished with the 3rd position in the tournament. Second place with 3 sector points was taken by Adam Lewandowski; finally, the winner of the competition with two winnings in sectors, was Sebastian Mazur from the Mikado Total Fishing Team.
All the participants were provided with starter packs prepared by Mikado. The best 6 contestants were additionally rewarded with Mikado sponsored fishing equipment.
On top of that Mikado decided to recognize the PAA National Team by providing them with fishing equipment and BKK treble hooks.
