Calling all kids, ages 3- 13! Want to show your par:30ents how to catch that monster catfish or lunker bass? Or show dad how to catch that big stringer of bluegill? This is your chance!  We had 75 children participate in 2017. Numerous fish were caught and lots of prizes given away!!  Since 2009 we have been hosting our local children here for a fun filled morning of fishing glory! No cost for participants and one container of bait provided, this is a fun and easy entertaining event for you and your kids.  Hotdogs and drinks for the kids afterwards.  Lots of prizes, Dreamweaver DJ, and plenty of laughs are what this is all about! Thanks to our local Parke County Bassmasters for their assistance and support, this event is growing and will continue for many years!
