Streaky Bay hosts fun day on the jetty | PHOTOS

Streaky Bay hosted its Family Fish Day earlier this month.

The event was hosted by the Streaky Bay Tourism and Business Association, and president Lyn Finch said a big crowd of more than 200 people were present, with locals joined by people coming from across the region, interstate and overseas, to enjoy the occasion.

There were more than 130 entries over the course of the morning, as people found their spot and cast their rods.

Participants received $5 for each species caught, while the biggest fish for the day received $100.

Nigel Brace from Killa's Streaky Bay, a main sponsor for the event, said it was a fun day on the jetty.

"We had a good day, we had a lot of entries and a fair few species were caught," he said.

"It was a bit cool down there, which is different to what we've been used to in recent years, but it was a day of great entertainment for the whole family.

"We had a good sized crowd there."

Connor Habel had the largest catch, while 32 anglers went home with $5 for catching three of a species.

Eighteen anglers claimed prizes for the largest catch of a species and 14 tackle boxes were handed out as spot prizes which delighted the winners and their families.

Ms Finch said the range of species caught on the day indicated the good health of the bay.
