Children’s Fishing Event a Big Success

Eighty-two Eastern Shore youngsters gathered on a bright and warm day at the Saxis Fishing Pier. Nearly 150 fish of various species were caught by 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 ( the rigors of baiting hooks and landing fish, the children enjoyed hot dogs and soda and a presentation of fishing tackle to the three youngsters who caught the largest fish. The free event was made possible in part by a grant from the Recreational Fisheries Development Fund administered by the Virginia Marine Resources Commission; numerous volunteers from the Eastern Shore of Virginia Anglers Club; and the assistance of Sea Hawk Sports Center.
