More locals cash in on fishing comp
TWO more lucky anglers have picked up $1000 each after landing specially-tagged barramundi in Lake Tinaroo as part of a State competition.
The Fish ‘n’ SIP$ competition has earned several anglers prizemoney in the past year, and five more fish with an exclusive green tag are waiting to be caught.
Shane Brettell and Terry Connolly are the latest fishers to be rewarded for their catch, receiving certificates and $1000 cheques from Tinaroo Fish Stocking Society acting secretary Ann Leighton.
Anglers must have a fishing permit to enter. Permits are available at Australia Post outlets.
The Fish ‘n’ SIP$ competition is an initiative of the Department of Agriculture and Fisheries.
