If you have children who love to fish, keep in mind that the next youth fishing tournament will be held on Saturday, Sept. 7 at the Boca Grande Fishing Pier (at the north end of the island.)
Fishing begins at 9 a.m. and ends at 11 a.m. Prizes and trophies are distributed at the end of the tournament.
Tournaments are for kids ages 15 and under. Bait is provided by Boca Grande Marina (no lures allowed). This is a catch-and-release tournament only.
All children must be supervised by an adult.
Registration is not necessary –– just be at the pier at 9 a.m. with a fishing pole and ready to fish. Refreshments are not provided so please bring drinks and snacks if necessary.
The tournaments are held by Lee County Parks & Recreation, and this year Miller’s Marina is providing the bait.
Also, this is the first fishing tournament that the Boca Beacon has co-sponsored with Lee County Parks & Recreation.
