Kid fishing fun!
The tournament was sponsored by the Redfi sh Bay Chapter of the CCA and was held at Woody’s Sports Center.
Everyone enjoyed a Cajun shrimp boil on Friday at registration, a morning of fishing, and a hot dog lunch after weigh-in on Saturday.
Every angler received a free rod and reel, courtesy of the CCA. Trophies also were awarded to every contestant even if there was no fish to weigh in.
