Saturday, June 7, the Corps of Engineers Hurricane Creek recreation area on Lake O’ The Pines, will be the scene of the 15th Annual Kids Free Fish Day.
Sponsored by the Pine Cone Fishing Club and eagerly supported by community volunteers and local businesses, the event draws hundreds of young girls & boys, ages 2 – 16, and accompanying adults from Texas and surrounding states.
Registration begins at 8:00 A.M., and after bank fishing for three hours, from 9 – noon, the kids proudly bring in their big catches of Bass, Bluegill, Red Ear, Stripers, Catfish, yes, even turtles, some weighing less than the digital scales can register but are logged in regardless.
Trophies will be awarded to five different age groups for the heaviest total weight of a stringer, but the real cash prizes go to the top three biggest fish.
Tackle, live bait, snacks, drinks and hotdogs are all furnished totally free to all participants and their accompanying adults. In addition, A FREE GIFT is given to each of the first 300 kids to register!!!
