Some local dads on Sunday got to show off some skills they might have learned from their dads. Fathers and their families got to 'catch' a unique memory and hopefully a fish or two at the Knoxville Father's Day Fishing Event. 

It was held at Victor Ashe Park and organizers made sure the odds of catching fish were in the dads' favor.

Each year, TWRA stocks the lake with 800 pounds of catfish right before Father's Day for the event.

Dads at the event said they really enjoyed the chance to teach their kids a valuable skill.

"It's very special. It isn't often you get to teach them something, and fishing is probably one of the best things you can teach them," said Donald Raby, a dad fishing with his family at the event.

There were also prizes awarded for the top three largest fish caught by a father and child team.
