The BLUEFIN FISHING TEAM was announced with the handover of a new Estuary Pro to Hervey Bay junior Aidan Robertson.
Aidan as the first member of the team will be competing in the ABT Bass Electric series this season in his new Bluefin which has been designed in conjunction with ABT tournament director Simon Goldsmith.
The Estuary Pro was developed with the electric series in mind, giving all of the features of a much larger tournament boat but keeping the weight down. It can quickly be adapted to incorporate a traditional outboard.
Complete with Rod Locker, Flowrite Pro Tournament Livewell, A full front and rear casting deck, hookless carpet and plenty of storage space to house the equipment that tournament anglers carry onboard.
Company Director Brad Richey says, "We are extremely excited to be partnering with Aidan, he has a strong following on social media and some fantastic alliances with some great companies. I am confident he will be very competitive in the series and he will definitely stand out in his custom boat. We look forward to seeing Aidan in action over the coming season."
Bluefin has long been associated with ABT and other tournaments around the country, however this is the companies first venture into the tournament scene through an official endorsement. Mr Richey says as the leaders in Aluminium Sportsfishing boats we are looking to cement our position amongst tournament anglers who are looking for a boat with all of the features, but also the versatility and benefit of an aluminium hull.
