Do you think your child can catch the “big one?”
is sponsoring the youth fishing contest at Millpond Park, Aug. 11.
The event is part of Saline Summerfest 2012. The contest is free.
The event, open to children 14 and younger, awards prizes to the kids who catch the most fish and the biggest fish. Contestants will be divided up into three age groups: 11-14, 7-10 and six and under.
The contest begins at 8 a.m.. Registration is at 7:30 p.m. Participants must be present at 11 a.m. to be eligible for prizes.
Here are some other things parents and kids should know:
• Kids should bring their own fishing poles and hooks.
• Worms will be provided.
• Adults can help with casting, but kids must reel in the fish.
• All fish should be released after counting and measuring.
The event is also supported by Cabela’s.
