The MiniBucks Shootout Series is a new ‘Match Play’ style teams fishing
series comprised of three bream events, to be held on the Gold Coast,
and three bass rounds held at Borumba Dam.
All events will be two-day
tournaments with each team competing against one other team rather than
an entire field of other teams.
Competing teams will be paired against each other at the Friday night
draw, with the winners from day one progressing to day two, to battle
against other winning teams (Pool A) to decide the overall winner.
Non-winning teams from day one will still get to fish on day two, but
will instead fish against other non-winning day one teams (Pool B).
This style of event will certainly create a special atmosphere at the
weigh-in as teams drawn together weigh-in at the same time to see who
has the best bag. Entry into the events is $80.00 per team, and as the
name MiniBucks suggests makes it very affordable. The prize pool will
consist of cash and prizes.
In keeping with the freshness of the new tournament format, we
encourage anglers to introduce new people to the sport of tournament
fishing, and recommend that existing bream and bass pros fish with a
first time competitor.
Bream events will have a bag limit of 5 fish per team per session,
while bass events will have a bag limit of 4 fish per team, per
session. Cast and retrieve, and no trolling will be the only forms of
fishing allowable. Fish will be weighed and total bag weights will
The series will be capped off with a Gala
Presentation Night in Brisbane.
