I saw on the news First Catch had 247 kids registered and well over 400 people involved in their kids outing last sat.

After rescheduling due to bad weather mother nature cooperated and they had a perfect day. 150 rods only lasted 45 minutes , over 600 hot dogs were consumed and gallons of hot chocolate and juice drank. The entire event is free to the kids thanks to great sponsors and a fundraiser they had in december.

It was a huge success and everyone had a great time. The fishing was a bit tough due to a high pressure system moving through but a few gills , crappies , perch and even a 3 lb catfish were caught.

Check out www.firstcatch.org for pictures , be sure to look under event 2008 for pictures. A 300% increase in attendance from last years event ensures future events are just gonna get better.....

Yes , we normally aim for mid february , but the weather has caused both events to be delayed. It actually worked out as both make up dates were beautiful.
