Oceanside, California – November 13, 2012 – Hobie Cat Company has just welcomed and hosted 42 competitors representing 12 countries for the second annual Hobie Fishing World Championship. The final day has ended, but the fish, fun and international camaraderie will remain for many years to come for the team members that "angled" for the honor of being crowned World Champion. The event, presented by Daiwa®, took place November 4-9 just outside Austin, Texas. All competitors fished for freshwater bass from identically rigged Hobie Mirage® Pro Angler kayaks provided by Hobie Cat Company and powered by the Hobie MirageDrive®. They were all outfitted with Lowrance® Electronics and Ram® Mounting Systems. 42 competed, but it was Florida's Marty Mood that took top honor, walking away as World Champion.
