7th Hobie Fishing European Championship. Lake Bolsena, Italy Sept 2020

“Stunning… gorgeous… absolutely beautiful…” These are just a few of the terms everyone who arrives at Lake Gruza uses to describe the tournament arena for the 6th Hobie Fishing European Championship held in Serbia.

Lake Gruza, a drinkwater basin in the centre of Serbia is probably one of the best maintained lakes and an undiscovered sport fishing paradise. With reports of massive zander and pike being active in the waters this promises to be an exciting weekend. Our organizing partner Sailing & Fishing Infinity Club give it there everything to make this an incredible experience for all attendees. From the event HQ located on a private peninsula you have a panoramic view of the lake.

Tomorrow, all competitors will get the first chance to explore the lake on … pre fish and create their game plan for the competition. The competitors, traveled from 14 countries across Europe, target Pike and Zander this event. They can submit three of each for the rankings.

An event like this would not be possible without the help of local and regional partners. Sailing & Fishing Infinity Club has done an amazing job doing all the groundwork and providing excellent on site help.

We’d also like to thank our sponsors for this event: Lowrance, Rapala, Sufix, High 5 Lures, Hobie Polarized, Westin, Gerber Gear, Power-Pole, Daiwa, Rebelcell for providing an superb goodie bag and a more than excellent prize table.
