The annual fishing derby.
The annual youth fishing derby took place yesterday at the marina where my daughter and son in law keep their boat. The weather could have not been better. Sunny skies and temps around 80. When we arrived the young anglers were chomping at the bit, waiting for the 10 AM official start time. These kids were all sizes and ages 2 to 13.
At 10 the horn sounded and the worms were tossed in. But a few seconds passed when the words "got one" were shouted out. From that time til noon the officials who were measuring and recording the catches were very busy. The marinas waters are home to sunfish, crappie, bluegill, bass, catfish and pickerel.
After the derby had ended, and the tallies were being calculated, we were all treated to a wonderful cookout, with all the favorite summer foods.
Some of the proud winners. Good job by all.
This little guy was caught by Ethan. The turtle grabbed on to the worm and refused to let it go.
