North Missouri Sportsman’s Alliance – Kids Fishing Derby

The North Missouri Sportsman’s Alliance (NMCA) free Kids Fishing Derby returns to the Baptist Home Pond on Saturday, June 4th.  Steve Shoot from the alliance says The Fishing Derby is co-hosted by the NMSA and the Missouri Department of Conservation.

The Fishing Derby will run from 9 a.m. to 12 noon, with registration beginning at 8:30 a.m.

“Every youngster 15 years and under will receive a free fishing lure when they register.  Only those youngsters participating in the Fishing Derby will receive the free lure, plus we will be giving away hundreds of dollars of free fishing equipment to the kids that take part in the derby at the end of the event.

Shoot emphasize the Kids Fishing Derby is a non-competitive event and only children will be allowed to fish.  Adults will be allowed to help kids cast and, if needed, provide minimal assistance when a fish is being brought to shore..

MDC personnel will also be on hand, providing fishing poles and bait to those youngsters trying to catch a fish.
