That’s not a catfish!!! But trust me when I say he did not know the difference and he had a blast catching the only bass in the pond.

Let’s wet a line

H earne »

It is that time again, time to wet a line and go catch some catfish.

The 5th Annual Hearne Fishing Derby will take place this Sunday, May 5 at the Ruben Gomez City Park in Hearne. The Derby starts at 10:00 a.m. for the kids 18 years an under to come out and catch their fill of catfish. At 12 noon the pond will be open to the general public to try their hand at a pond full of fish.

“Solitude Lake Management again this year is stocking the pond with 200 lbs of catfish,” said Teresa Phillips, one of the even coordinators. “The newspaper asks for fish ranging from 1-8 lbs, and I can tell you there are several of those 8 lb. monsters to be caught.”
