Rare Sight--Large Fish Caught Inland

Rare Sight--Large Fish Caught Inland

With the current inclement weather being experienced through high tides and rough seas, it is almost impossible for persons to utilize the rocks and sea front to attempt any successful fishing exercise.

However an American national who has been visiting this island annually for the last 25 years has been demonstrating how those with a love for fishing can avoid those rough seas by remaining on dry land and still ensure that this important protein source reaches their dinner tables.

Stewart Mc Kown amazed everyone when he caught two, over five lbs. Tarpon ( GrandDiKay) fish in the fresh water lagoon along the road close to the gate at the main car park at the Lauristan Airport.

He said that this species of fish normally uses areas of that nature to spawn.

“I normally would do this twice a week for the fun just to catch and release them back into the area,” said McKown who spoke of his passion for fishing. “However those I would catch from the sea when I am on the rocks surely reach the dinner table.”

His catch attracted the attention of many who were at the airport to welcome home the victorious Bishop’s College Debate Team from the GRENLEC Secondary Schools Debate finals the previous day.

Several persons who later learned of the experience expressed shock that the area had been a breeding ground for any fish much less the size of, McKown’s catch.
