Hey… hier zijn we weer met een update van onze wedstrijd. Voorbije 3 dagen waren -zacht uitgedrukt- hectisch, daarom hadden we niet eerder de tijd om wat te schrijven.
Maandag morgen was het de start van de eerste dag. Herman had de nodige stewards geregeld om de bootcontrole strak te laten verlopen, en de sfeer was bij alle teams optimaal. Het is na de bootcontrole altijd leuk buurten met de andere teams, waar we intussen al veel gasten van kennen. Lees “Nico en Frans Predator Battle 2020 deel 3: Game On!” verder
When you start your day as leading team you must be very nervous, team 1 Julian and Krzysztof had the best score ever in the Battle, is that beatable?? I’m sure that there are enough teams who could do it!
After the boat check a small pep talk to the teams that the fight is not over yet so after some screaming we left to the starting point to kick off ….full speed. Lees “Predator Battle Ireland day 3 the final day!” verder
After the boat check in Killaloe we all feel a bit better, participants are chill we did our work so all ready for day 2. It is always a bit a nervous moment of the day, launch your boat, be on time, did I bring all my gear! Day 2 a windy one is that good or bad? Bad for smaller boats and better for the bigger ones?
All teams on time this morning so all full in the focus! After some boat checks and making the first photos of the team we left Killaloe harbour direction Lough Derg.
Hier zijn we weer met een update vanuit Ierland. Sinds dinsdag was het vissen van ’s morgens tot ’s avonds, dus veel tijd om wat te schrijven zat er niet in tot nu. Elke dag waren we op het water om zo veel mogelijk te verkennen en info op te doen.

Today all the teams had to collect their measuring board at Flanagan’s on the lake between 1 and 3 pm just to spread out people (Covid-19), but the sun was out and how….summer is back 😊 The hot weather brought loads of other tourism out, so happy we had our own area/space outside to protect us! Is there anybody who sees something special on this Alumacraft Escape?
So team by team in the queue to collect their map with instructions and the whatsapp number to send the catch photos to the control post during the match. After that they could follow the tables with all the free goodies till the measuring board.
So for all paricipants streamers from Big Streamers Netherlands.
Strike Pro Buster jerks special edition for the Predator Battle Ireland from Dennet Outdoor further Strike pro bags for all the free goodies.
Boxes with softbaits from a sponsor who is gone…. long story 😊
Navionics will sponsor team prizes but they had fishing caps for all as well.
After all those formalities a moment of meeting old and new frends, you only had to sit down to receive your Irish stew from Flanagan’s on the lake. I had one and can tell you…very tasty 😊
The participants came by car and others came from the lake, easy enough to moor your boat at the sign up and to meet up. They felt like a king with all tourists on the shore with some impressive boats!
On the end I got a present myself one great rain suit from the sponsor Graff Ireland, thanks guys.
Difficult to recognize some people with masks etc. and some of them you now them only from facebook so sorry for that 😊
4 more days to meet because I’m 3 days on the lake to keep an eye on you with the other stewards, and to check your boat once in a while….and better don’t make mistakes….no mercy at all 😊
Tomorrow the first competition day, boat check between 7.15 and 8.30 better be on time we don’t wait for you!
Loads of changes of course, no team meeting inside with slideshow, food, beer and more beer while meeting new and old friends. Shaking hands, hugging, high fives etc. not going to happen. Lees “Predator Battle Ireland 2020….it will happen!” verder
