Nine-year-old Gavin Garcia and his four-year-old sister Juliana caught catfish at the same time while fishing off a friend’s dock on Continental last week. They used buns rolled into balls for bait. Both fish were released back into lake.
The siblings like to fish on the weekends, said their mom Cara Garcia.
Gavin is looking forward to fishing in the Bassmasters Kids Fishing Derby next month. Although still too young to enter the Kids Fishing Derby, Juliana plans to be there to cheer on her brother.

Tracy Schulz caught this grass bass at Sunset Beach using Berkley bait and her new Garcia fishing pole. “Always a great feeling to catch a fish and have the people on the beach cheer you on as you pull it in,” said Tracy. Tracy fishes about four to five times a week and said she always releases her catches back into the lake so they can grow.
