Snapper Derby this month for children

The annual Children’s Snapper Derby will be held on Saturday, Sept. 17, at Lisman Landing.

Fishing begins at 6 a.m. and weigh-ins will be done 7:30 to 11:30 a.m. Sponsored by the City of Milford and the Milford Sport Fishing Association, the event is open to any child 13 years old and under and there is no fee for participation.

First, second and third place prizes will be awarded to three children based on a total of their five heaviest fish, ten fish maximum. Refreshments will be served around noon, and a free raffle will be held during the event.

Mayor Ben Blake said, “The Milford Sport Fishing Association and I enjoy getting kids hooked on fishing. We look forward to seeing them and their families and friends having fun at this event.”
