Fish Of The Week Winner - 29th July was Charlie Grant, 9, who caught his FIRST EVER Catfish of 18lbs 4oz from the Easy Access Lake. It’s moments like these, that make us love what we do and when you see Families like the Grants enjoying the sport together and making memories like this, is just perfect.
Charlie’s face is priceless and has certainly made us all Smile with him. The Passion that boy has for Fishing is just great and we were thrilled to present him as the Winner and as you can see…he was too!!
“We got to Anglers Paradise bang on 1 o’clock, checked in and headed for the Easy Access Lake. We wanted to catch a Cat as none of us had caught one before. Dad got the first one @13lb on a carp rig. Dad set us up Cat Rigs and we cast out. All of a sudden, my reel went screaming off and I was then on for the fight of my life!
Dad helped with 1 hand on the rod as it was so strong. When Joe netted it I couldn't believe my eyes…We weighed it and it came to 18lb 4oz. A New Grant Cat Record, I was so, so happy!”
WELL DONE CHARLIE AND WHAT A FANTASTIC PICTURE OF YOU WITH YOUR 1ST EVER CAT!! A TRULY GREAT WINNER!
