Kids Win fishing tournament coming up

Published: Thursday, May 2, 2013 at 09:09 AM.

On Friday, May 10, registered contestants can pick up their fishing equipment at the Port St. Joe Marina between 3 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. ET.

Kids will also enjoy a cookout, exhibits, and on-site classes to get tips on rod casting, knot tying, and casting nets. These classes will provide kids with important information to ensure they have a fun and active day of catching fish instead of remembering the one that got away. The official rules meeting will follow at 6:30 at the Marina.

The tournament kicks off at 7 a.m. ET on Saturday morning. Fishing ends by noon with trophy presentation to follow at one o’clock. Children may fish with an adult, but must be the ones to reel in all fish entered into the competition.

Registration is free and is open until May 9. Those interested in volunteering or making donations should contact the Port St. Joe Marina at 850-227-9393.
