Children’s Fishing Event a Success

Sunny skies and a light breeze greeted Eastern Shore youngsters who gathered June 2 at Morley’s Wharf Fishing Pier on Occohannock Creek. A few fish cooperated for the children, all of whom received a fishing rod and reel and a great introduction to angling under the auspices of the Eastern Shore of Virginia Anglers Club (
After the rigors of baiting hooks and landing fish, the children enjoyed hot dogs and soda and a presentation to the three youngsters who caught the largest fish. The free event was made possible by the Virginia Marine Resources Commission;
Schmidt Baking Co.; Matt Abell of Sea Hawk Sports Center; Sherry Jo’s Custom Baits; Bill and Sheila Wolfram; and volunteers from the Eastern Shore of Virginia Anglers Club.
Shown in the accompanying photo are a few of the boys and girls who participated in the event.
