LET'S FISH scales up to include Sunday festival
Let’s Fish Lake Mac is set to make an even bigger splash this year, with a land-based festival accompanying a weekend of fishing action afloat.
The outstanding success of last year’s inaugural festival has prompted Lake Macquarie City Council to expand its horizons for 2021, setting the scene for the city’s first major event since the easing of COVID restrictions.
Lake Macquarie Mayor Kay Fraser said the 13-14 November event weekend would see anglers of all ages take to the water in a catch-and-release quest targeting four key species: bream, flathead, whiting and tailor.
“We had more than 1000 people for last year’s competition, and we’re expecting even more to sign up this time around,” Cr Fraser said.
