An­glers flock to catch a catty

Central and North Burnett Times - - LOCAL SPORT -

THEY came from far and wide with one thing in mind – to catch the big­gest cat­fish.

The Par­adise Stock­ing As­so­ci­a­tion’s third an­nual Catch a Catty Day Fam­ily Fish­ing Com­pe­ti­tion at Mingo Cross­ing was a hit last week­end.

From all re­ports ev­ery­one en­joyed them­selves, even though many went home with­out catch­ing that really big one.

The win­ner of the big­gest cat­fish was Trevor Clarey of Mt Perry with a 3.956kg fish, Kylie Buck­holz of Gayn­dah with a 1.568kg fish, Cody Tier­ney of Tiaro with a 1.482kg fish and Tekiya Ge­orge of Gayn­dah with a 1.526kg fish.

The win­ners of Satur­day’s ma­jor draws of camp­ing gear and fish­ing rod and tackle box were Peter Enchel­maier of Mun­dub­bera and So­phie Doyle of Gayn­dah.

Sun­day’s win­ners, Peter Brin­nand of Glad­stone took home and jet cleaner and ra­dio while Jas­min Briggs took home some camp­ing gear.

Mi­randa Bu­cholz of Gayn­dah had a lucky week­end win­ning first and third prizes in the ma­jor raf­fle, while Phil Walker, also of Gayn­dah, won the sec­ond prize.

Be­sides the ma­jor win­ners, ev­ery­one gath­ered to­gether on Satur­day night and Sun­day for lucky draws and the com­mit­tee would like to thank all spon­sors who do­nated to make them pos­si­ble.
