The Hobie European Kayak Fishing Championship 2021 took place this time in the Dutch Rhine Delta. After two years without this fantastic happening, all participants were thirsting for competition, conviviality, and great catches. It was obvious that SCALE had to be part of this event again!

The sea bass is probably the most sought-after marine predator in Europe. It can be fished from shore, from boats, from the surface as well as the bottom. It can be found in the North Sea in Norway and in the Atlantic in Morocco and basically everything in between, especially the Mediterranean Sea. This rather opportunistic predator is found in different types of habitats. It likes the brackish waters of mouths and lagoons. But also, surprisingly, it wanders upstream in rivers, sometimes quite far, in fresh water!
