Kids 4th of July Fishing Tournament
July 14, 2019
Forty-Four Fish and Useppa’s Almost All Girl Izaak Walton Kids Fishing Tournament - Pictures and Thoughts by UseppaGin - It wasn’t intended, but the 4th of July Izaak Walton Kids Fishing Tournament ended up five girls, one two year old boy, and another little boy on the sidelines. The girls called it an All-Girl Tournament and since they caught 43 of the 44 fish, nobody argued with them. Sixteen year old Jonathon Kerr fished Kids Tournaments when he was younger. He and two friends volunteered to run this one. Jonathon, Josh Milam and Scott Larguier administered The Fisherman’s Oath, measured and released each catch. It was kids helping kids. Trophies were awarded for Most Fish, First Fish, and Second Most Fish. Elliot won a trophy as the Youngest and Only Boy to Catch a Fish. The Most Dedicated Fisherwoman hung in there and caught her first fish with only minutes left in the tournament. The Bravest Fisherwoman was fishing, and fell kerplunk in the water, but didn’t give up.
