Sail-World.com : Honda’s tournament presence increases
Honda’s tournament presence increases

'Honda tournament presence 1'    Sandman PR
Honda is continuing to make its mark on Australia’s tournament fishing scene, with last week’s Squidgie Southern Bream Series (SSBS) Grand Final contested by several Honda-powered boats.

A familiar face on the podium at many elite-level bream tournaments – and finishing in third place in the SSBS Grand Final – Team Honda Marine Pro Angler Steve ‘Gillie’ Gill said it was encouraging to see 'so much silver'.

'In an arena dominated by two-stroke outboards, an increasing number of anglers are turning to Honda’s advanced four-stroke technology for its reliability, fuel efficiency and stealthy performance,' Steve said.

'It’s these class-leading attributes that led me to Honda in the first place… and I believe it’s contributed to my tournament fishing success over the years.'

Despite leading the field heading into the final day of the SSBS Grand Final, dropping a few fish early in the morning was enough to allow others to sneak in ahead of Gillie to take the top two places.

'That sort of performance can’t be blamed on equipment!' he laughed.

'While I always have complete confidence I’ll be able to fish an entire tournament without any engine problems, which can’t be said of some of the other boats on the circuit, the occasional slip-up through human error just can’t be avoided!'

Based at Woollamia, on the NSW South Coast, Steve is Honda's only sponsored ABT tournament angler. His next major event on the calendar is the 2012 Humminbird Bream Classic Grand Final, to be held on the Gippsland Lakes (VIC) in November.
