Stonka Fishing Challenge With Massive Catches

The annual Stonka Fishing Challenge 2023 was a huge success over the weekend, with hard competition and fantastic community spirit on show.

Featuring competitors across the region, and of any age and ability, the catches were impressive and triumphant for all.

Aside from the on-water comp, the event saw a wide variety of food stalls, bars, and live music at host venue Cape Gloucester Resort, as well as the tug-o-war and many other activities.

During the event, $12,000 in donations were gathered for the Leukaemia House in Townsville.
