The Covington News - - Newton @ Play - By Jenny Thompson

Down the Hatch has re­cently at­tracted some big name mu­si­cians to Cov­ing­ton and the head­lin­ers will con­tinue on April 23.

A fish­ing event and a per­for­mance by coun­try mu­sic star Tracy Lawrence are the high­lights of Down the Hatch’s Free-for-All event.

Be­gin­ning at 4 p. m. the Fish­ing Chal­lenge and Out­door Expo, spon­sored by Har­rah’s Casino, Pepsi and Chero­kee Fish­ing and Wildlife Man­age­ment, will in­vite pa­trons to throw a pole into a tank the size of a trans­porter on an 18-wheeler.

“There will be 50 tagged trout in the tank, so ev­ery time you catch a trout — you win some­thing,” said Katy Mote, co-owner of Down the Hatch.

An­glers can win con­cert and base­ball tick­ets, trips to Har­rah’s casi­nos and one lucky fish­er­man will win $100,000 cash.

From 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. Cle­dus T. Judd, week­day morn­ing and af­ter­noon D.J. from 94.9 the Bull, will broad­cast on a live re­mote from Down the Hatch.

“ He’s kind of like the Weird Al Yankovich of coun­try mu­sic,” Mote said. “He makes up funny songs and has been in lots of videos.”

Nashville star Tracy Lawrence will be­gin his per­for­mance at 8 p. m. His new sin­gle “Find out who your friends are” on the album “For the Love,” has reached No. 6 on the coun­try mu­sic charts.

Other give­aways in­clude Tshirts and Bud Light-branded mer­chan­dise.

The 21-and-up event is free to en­ter.

“It’s just go­ing to be an out­stand­ing show, and this is some­thing re­ally big for Cov­ing­ton,” Mote said. “ We’ll have more things like this be­cause we want to be an as­set to Cov­ing­ton.”
