Hundreds of kids cast reels at Kids Fishing Derby

MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – Hundreds of kids grabbed their rods and reels for a day on the lake Saturday.

The Macon Water Authority hosted its annual Kids Fishing Derby.

Fishermen cast their reels into Javors Lucas Lake.

The biggest catch received an award.

Frank Patterson hopes kids will get outdoor experience and learn how to fish.

“(We want to help) kids that may never go fishing except this time of year,” said Patterson. “So we’re just glad to be sponsors of this, teaching kids a lot of things.”

Patterson said they packed the lake with 1200 pounds of fish.

The event is held around this time each year.
