I have been a passionate angler since I was little and enjoy all different types of fishing. Found the “Hobie way of life” about five years ago and I have been fishing from a Hobie, paddled a SUP and sailed catamarans since.

In Stockholm, where I live, I mostly fish for the predators we have here, pike, zander, perch and salmon. My great interest of fishing has taken me on many great adventures and fabulous places around the world including trolling lures behind a sailing boat from Sweden to Australia.

I am really looking forward to compete in the Hobie Fishing Worlds and try to figure out how to catch the finicky predators in the Netherlands.

My name is Lars Lundberg, born 1965 and a member of Team Hobie Sweden. I am the Sales and Marketing Manager, representing Honeywell Analytics in Sweden. I have been a Hobie fan for the last 10 years with my first Outback from 2005. I have renewed my Outback a couple of times and added all necessary RAM equipment, Lowrance fish finders and my GoPros.

Last year my partner wanted to see more of me so we had to get a second Outback that she now seems to have fallen in love with!

I have been fishing almost all my life and I do a lot of competition fishing. I have also done a lot of fishing around the world, mainly deep sea fishing and winter time ice fishing. The last few years I have started to focus more on my kayak fishing.

Last year I managed to win the Swedish Hobie qualifier to the Hobie Kayak Fishing World Championship 2013 in Australia, unfortunately the dates collided with a very big start up of a new Biogas plant in Gothenburg that I had to attend. This year I managed to win again and nothing is going to stop me now. I am now looking forward to the Hobie Kayak Fishing World Championship 2014 and meeting my fellow Hobie kayak fishermen.
