A big catch at annual fish derby

DIKE (KWWL) -- The Grundy County Conservation Board held their fourth annual Fishing Derby on Grundy County Lake.

More than 50 people joined the tournament to fish.

Kevin Johnson caught the biggest bass of the day at 3.14 lbs and Collin Trenkamp caught the biggest catfish (4.03 lbs) and bluegill (0.42 lbs).

The fish were released after the tournament was over.

"We like to promote catch and release.  It's good for the lake.  Keep a lot of the fish in there.  We don't say you can't keep fish, but its kind of nice to have people release the fish once in a while to let the fish get bigger and have a good place to come and fish,"

The owners of the biggest catches won prizes including fishing rods.
