The kids won again last Saturday.

After a slight derailment in June due to poor weather, the twelfth annual Kids Win Fishing Tournament was held last weekend at the Port St. Joe Marina.

Presented by the Kids Win Foundation, the tournament welcomed children ages three to 16 to show off their skills, fishing in-shore or near-shore, from boats, docks, bridges, piers, or beaches.

Each of the 371 registered participants received a trophy and additional prizes were given out to the boy or girl with the biggest catch and the most fish caught.

Kids aged three to eight competed in the “small fry” division and those nine to 16 competed as “juniors.”

Those who registered in advance of the event were treated to a rod and reel, tackle packet, official Kids Win shirt and goodie bag.

“I think we had a great event, and I’m thrilled with how it turned out,” said Rick Carrie, President of the Kids Win Foundation. “It seemed like everyone enjoyed themselves.”
