Fish, Fun And Sun At Kids Fishing Day

Over 150 people, including children and their families took to Lake Proserpine last weekend for a mammoth day of fishing and fun.

A total of five lucky local youth won the big prize of a Daiwa Fishing Rod and a one hour exclusive fishing session with the local fishing legend Matt Scholz.

“They released 1000 bara fingerlings into the lake for the event,” explained Craig Turner, Director of Commercial Businesses for Whitsunday Regional Council.

“We also had great stalls, jumping castles and other activities for kids to enjoy.”

With informational talks about fishing for the adults and kids alike, there was something for everyone on the day.
