Lowrance congratulates ABT Barra Angler of the Year

Marine Electronics leader, Lowrance, congratulates Peter Price of Team Lowrance / Reidy’s Lures, for securing the overall ABT Barra Angler of the Year title on this year’s ABT Barra Tour 2012.

Taking place every year since 2005, the ABT Barra Tour has grown into an elite and well respected tournament series that sees the nation’s best barra anglers fight it out for the coveted Angler of the Year trophy.

A seasoned barra angler that has fished the event every year since it began, Lowrance sponsored angler Peter is not surprisingly, delighted with his win.

“It’s been my goal to win the overall Barra Angler of the Year!  I accomplished the Southern AOY in the 2011 tournament and I am thrilled that I’ve scooped the big one this year!”

Fishing out of a Quintrex Hornet Trophy equipped with a Lowrance Gen2 HDS-10 paired with StructureScan™ sonar imaging, Peter knows how to use his electronics to get the best out of a competitive fishing situation. 

“Using the StructureScan in side-viewing mode, gives me the confidence to know exactly what’s in the water.  Those big barra in the shallow water show up as clear as day on the screen and then it’s up to me to reel them in.”

Australian Sales and Marketing Director of Lowrance, Damien Weber said “We’re so happy that Peter has worked hard and won this prestigious event and look forward to him competing again next year!”
