Youngsters Enjoy a Few Hours of Fishing

Thirty one youngsters and their parents showed up for this years fishing program for the kids. I conduct this program each year under the sponsorship of The Harbour Fishing Club of Mooresville. The program is supported annually by Boaters Warehouse of Mooresville and this year we added Bass Pro Shops since they agreed to allow us to use their outdoor pond for the event. The weather was cloudy but the rain held off just long enough for the kids to catch more than 50 fish.

More than eight rod and reel combinations were given out to winners in several categories. 15 boys and 16 girls attend the event t his year with the girls taking the prize for catching the most fish. For some youngsters, this was the first time they had an opportunity to fish and certainly the first time they caught a fish. Gracie Caminiti shown here with her dad Keith was excited about her first fish, and she was the youngest girl to catch a fish.
The kids caught bream, bass and catfish, all of which were returned to the pond. The real reward of this program is to see the smile on the faces of the kids when they pull in their first fish. More important, this gives the youngsters an opportunity to spend some quality outdoor time with their parents.
