All about the Bass at the Lake Cania Fishing Classic

The annual Lake Cania Fishing Classic was held last weekend with hundreds of entries competing for the hundreds of fantastic prizes awarded for the best catch of the weekend – and there were some beauties!

The major prize of the Quintrex 350 Dart with a 6hp Mercury at the 2017 Lake Cania Fishing Classic donated by Ship and Sail Gladstone was won by Brad Lower from Jambin.

Brad reckons it is the perfect prize for his kids to take full advantage of the beautiful surroundings of Lake Cania and the dam, renowned for its bass and Saratoga.
