By LEE McIVORlmcivor@gladstoneobserver.dyndns.org

LAKE Awoonga's Merv Hinneberg is calling on the region's young anglers to come out to the lake next weekend and join in the inaugural Brats in Boats Fishing Competition.

The Brats in Boats competition starts at 4pm on Friday, January 13 with a registration and briefing session.

Mr Hinneberg said prominent barramundi fishermen Neale Schulz and Dave Hodge would host the briefings.

'There is also the chance for one or two lucky kids to accompany Dave Hodge on his boat each day and get personalised tuition,' he said.

All age groups have been catered for with categories for kids under 5, under 10, under 15 and under 18.

All children under five must be accompanied by an adult.

Registration for the event is $20 and registration forms are available from Lake Awoonga Caravan Park.

'Three quarters of the registration fee will go towards the Starlight Foundation,' Mr Hinneberg said.

'We're trying to get mums and dads out here to give them a bit of fun. There's nothing like seeing your child reel in a good-sized barra.'
