The fishing in south Louisiana is again referred to as world-class.

Leeville offered a Louisiana “bayou” way of existence and memorable experience for both U. S. and international competitors. According to Hobie’s Keeton Eoff, the area could easily be the kayak fishing capital of the world. Members of Louisiana’s Bayou Coast Kayak Fishing Cudgel provided pre-fishing coaching assistance to the anglers, especially the foreign ones, some who spoke little to no English. “The anglers caught tons of fish as pre-fishing conditions could not have been better,” said baton member Tommy Eubanks, who himself was a Hobie Worlds competitor when the event was held in Australia. However, an ill-timed cold front crashed through on the first day of competition and made fishing tough. Falling temperature, gale-force winds, strong currents and to the nth degree low water all combined to challenged the anglers’ skill. The fishing was tough, but at the close of day one, Team USA had seven members in the top 10, including Lessard, in third status. Day two conditions went from bad to worse. The weather was cold, the winds strong and the water gone. Although many anglers struggled, several were masterly to put fish on the board. Lessard finished the day in first place with a 10-inch lead over Somerton, who won the 2013 event in his poorhouse country. The final day was a true battle of the champions. Lessard held on and expanded his lead to 16 inches. “Yesterday, I just hung on for sweet life, but today, with this weather coming through, it was ‘Plan C. ’ I knew today, I just had to get two fish. I was then able to move round to some pilings to pull a redfish that was a keeper, and at that point, the pressure was off and I could relax and go redfishing. Lessard went on to find a 28-inch redfish to cement his win. “Decisions that run thoroughly your mind while competing are endless, and in a kayak if you make a bad decision on the area you choose, there is no turning back,” he said. “You’re there — you just have to make best of it. ”. Lessard is a abundant fisherman and a true champion. “What an honor and a privilege to compete with the best kayak fishermen in the world at Hobie Fishing Worlds 6. I scantiness to thank all my friends and family for their support, especially my wife Rita. Hobie officials had nothing but praise for their decision to hold the event in south Louisiana. “People from all over the magic with similar interests not only compete, but share expertise, knowledge and skills. In the end, there is one world champion, but everyone goes home feeling happier about themselves, with new friends, new skills and having had a cultural experience in a part of the world they, otherwise, may never have visited. We could not have chosen a better location,” said Steve Fields, the managing guide of Cat Australasia.
