Kids need to bring a “fishing” hat, bait, rod and reel or cane pole and ice chest for fish, Jinright said.

There is no recommended catfish bait although Catfish Charlie and chicken livers are seemingly the baits of choice.

Prizes will be awarded for the biggest catfish caught in each division.

Lunch will be served and prizes awarded.

Jinright said, Kids’ Fishing Day is always fun. He can’t guarantee that every kid will catch a fish but he can guarantee the pond is teeming with catfish to catch.
