The Land of Lakes Association gave kids a fun outing on Sunday, June 9, when they held their fourth annual kids fishing derby during the state’s free fishing weekend.
Spokesman Mike Nienhuis said there were about 10 kids ages 3 to 12 that took part in the derby. The event was just for fun, so no awards were given, but they all got some type of prize, including tackle boxes, and gift certificates to local restaurants. The kids also got free lunch that included hot dogs, chips, pop and a dessert.
Nienhuis said the majority of fish caught included bass, bluegill and rock bass.
