Louisa County sheriffs are challenging local fishermen to bring in the biggest catfish.

The Catfish Challenge starts at 7 p.m. on Saturday August 12 at the High Point marina in Lake Anna and ends the following morning. There's a $30.00 entrance fee and the proceeds benefit the Louisa K-9 team.

“It's to benefit our K-9 department. We're getting ready to acquire a new K-9 patrol narcotics dog which is very expensive. Those dogs can run up to $10,000," said Major Don Lowe of the Louisa County Sheriff’s Dept.

Prizes include trophies and fishing rods and the grand prize winners will split the cash pot with the sheriff's department.

For more information call Louisa County Sheriffs at 540-967-4585 or email Buck Garner at bgarbner@louisa.org.
