There were a few heavy rain showers on Tuesday morning, but the rest of the day was nice.
The Andy and Opie Kids Fishing Tournament sponsored by Techno Goober along with many local businesses will be held this Saturday at Milton Memorial Park. Registration begins at 8:00 AM with fishing from 9:00 AM until noon. The children will be divided into three age groups, 7 and under, 8-12 and 13-17. There will be boys’ and girls’ divisions. Trophies will be awarded to those with the three longest fish in each group. The longest fish of the tournament will win a custom rod worth $300 from PC Rods of Milton.
Each child must be accompanied by an adult. Children may bring their own rod and reel or use those provided by the tournament. The first 300 registered anglers will receive a free rod and reel and a tackle box. Bait will be provided and Irish Eyes will serve hot dogs at 11:00 AM.
The weather for Saturday looks great and this is the perfect opportunity to take a kid fishing.
