A new Stacer Bass Boat for Team Abu Garcia/Evinrude
TEAM Abu Garcia/Evinrude will now compete in a tricked out Stacer for the first time ever. Powered by an Evinrude E-TEC 150 hp high output G2, Ross Cannizzaro and teammate Codie Stewart will take their Stacer 529 Assault Pro to Australia’s east coast fishing competitions.
Cannizzaro and Stewart are Sydney locals who have been fishing in Australian competitions from Northern NSW to Gippsland for the last 4 years.
Their greatest achievements include finishing Team of the Year 3 out of the 4 years they have competed together in the Berkley Super Series and winning the Sydney Major Grand Final in 2018.
To compete in the Major Grand Final, Cannizzaro and Stewart needed to finish within the top 25 out of 200 entrants over 5 rounds.
In addition to the Berkley Super Series, Cannizzaro and Stewart also regularly compete in the East Coast Bream Series and the Australia Bass Tournament.
The duo’s favourite event is the grassroots Urunga Flathead Classic held in North Coast of NSW. Since this event is geared towards young anglers, Cannizzaro and Stewart get a lot of satisfaction out of attending a competition that encourages young fishos to have a passion for the sport.
The duo chose a Stacer 529 Assault Pro because of its standard large casting platforms, live well, thruster bracket, and the ability to equip their boat with heaps of electronics.
Cannizzaro and Stewart grew up using Evinrude Outboards and are true believer in the product. When the G2 range was first released, they were trusted to test prototype engines for hundreds of hours.
Formerly the team only used fiberglass boats, but after experiencing the Stacer charge through the rough waters of the Sydney bay, they were both impressed with how well the boat handled.
“Bass fishing competitions have got out of hand; the average joe doesn’t need an expensive bass boat” said Cannizzaro.
“Our new Stacer will prove that you can be competitive in fishing competitions using a boat that is priced for better value.
“After fishing for my whole life and competitively for many years, Stewart and I know exactly what we want in a boat” said Cannizzaro.
“Stacer is not your average tinny. The hull itself is designed to go fast and we were surprised with how much gear could be put in the boat. I have used bigger boats that have had less storage that the Stacer 529 Assault Pro.”
