Day Two saw a small breeze at the start and weather was a little cooler. Team Bream It On backed up their lead with another good bag leaving them on top of the leader board with Josh Williams taking out the Cranka big Bream with a 1.520kg. Team Cranka slugged it out with no main motor all weekend and still came up with the goods, slotting them into second place with a top bag 5.670kg. Third place went to a father and son team with smiles all round for them. Another smooth and great tournament was had by all. With anglers looking forward to the final round on the Derwent River in Hobart.
Today saw the start of round 2 of The Tasmanian Bream classic 2013 held on the Swan River. Weather conditions were perfect and Swansea as always put on a beautiful day. With nearly all anglers catching a mix of big and small fish, positions after day one are tight and as a result have made way for a tightly contested day of fishing tomorrow.
