Fishing Derby For Children Slated For Saturday At Monett Park Lake

Wednesday, May 27, 2009

A children's fishing derby, sponsored by the Monett Sportsmen's League, is planned for Saturday, May 30, at the Monett South Park Lake from 8 to 11 a.m.

The annual event has been held for "decades," according to league spokesman Jon Suit.

"Last year we had about 45 kids participating, and we would like to see more," Suit said.

Children 15 years of age and under are invited to participate.

Luck E Strike, of Cassville, will provide lure packs for the youngsters.

Suit said cash prizes from the league's treasury will be given to the top anglers in each age division.

Lunch will be provided by the league following the derby.

Parents are welcome to assist children in baiting the hooks.
