Big crowd ex­pected for Lake Buf­falo fish­ing com­pe­ti­tion

Alpine Observer - - Alive -

LAKE Buf­falo’s an­nual fish­ing com­pe­ti­tion is again ex­pected to at­tract a big crowd when it kicks off this Satur­day Novem­ber 3.

Reg­is­tra­tion open this Fri­day with as many as 200 peo­ple ex­pected to com­pete, weather al­low­ing.

Event or­gan­iser, Rob Ivone, said peo­ple were now trav­el­ling great dis­tances to at­tend the grow­ing event.

“It’s been go­ing on a while and is cer­tainly gain­ing mo­men­tum,” he added.

“The grounds are look­ing fan­tas­tic at the mo­ment so hope­fully the weather holds out so we can en­joy it, the lakes (also) look­ing good and there’s a bit of wa­ter in there.”

Mr Ivone said the warmer weather should at­tract Redfin while peo­ple will also chase Trout fur­ther up the river.

“We haven’t had a huge amount of re­ports of peo­ple catch­ing heaps out there at the mo­ment but there’s been a few good Trout caught for sure,” he added.

The fam­ily friendly event is by no means ul­tra-com­pet­i­tive, though there is a mag­nif­i­cent prize for the win­ner.

Worth over $3000, the win­ner of the com­pe­ti­tion will re­ceive an all ex­clu­sive Bar­ra­mundi fish­ing tour in the North­ern Ter­ri­tory and en­try into the lu­cra­tive Mil­lion Dol­lar Fish (MDF).
