2013 FISHING DERBY NEWS
On Saturday, June 8, 2013, the Kickin' Bass Fishing Club and the
Woodbury Heights Lake Association (WHLA) hosted another tremendous day of (catch and release) fishing, fun, food, and prizes
when the clouds parted to gift us with a beautiful day. This Annual Fishing Derby (held at Glen Lake in Woodbury
Heights) is a great community builder for the young and young-at-heart alike as they test their fishing skills and interact
with peers/parents/mentors (or just kick back for some relaxation among new and seasoned friends).
A total of 92 youth signed up this year with a combined catch of 100 fish ( bass, sunfish, crappies, and catfish). Prizes
were also awarded for the largest, smallest, and most fish (any species) in each age group. The winner for the largest fish
in each age group received a trophy, a new rod/reel combo, a WHLA T-shirt, and a prize pack of assorted goodies. The prize
for most fish caught in each age group was a $20 Dicks gift card, a new rod/reel combo, and a prize pack. The prize for the
smallest fish in each group was a new rod/reel combo, and a prize pack. In addition to the prizes awarded, all other youth
who entered and participated received a gift bag full of items provided by the sponsors.
The winners, by age group, of this year's event are as follows :
5 & under:
Largest- Brody McLaventy
Most - Rian Caldwell

A very grateful thank you goes out to our many sponsors and supporters who worked together to make this event possible.
