While on the road promoting World Fishing Network and fishing in myregion, I had the opportunity to check out a local fishing derby. It was a privilegeto participate in the 29th Annual Fishing Derby hosted byGuysborough District Fish & Game Association on Saturday, June 18, 2016.

As soon as I saw the poster of the event and their great lookingclubhouse, I knew it was going to be a great derby. There were around 200participants eyeing the top prizes and draws. Top prize for the Adult Division was$500 for the heaviest registered and tagged speckled trout. First place in theJunior Division won $125 for the heaviest registered speckled trout. Prizeswere also awarded for the largest eel and mudsucker.

During the day, competitors hooked a few nice trout while looking forthat tagged one. But in the end, it was Stratton Mackay with the winning trout.His catch weighed in at 3 pounds 9 ounces.

I have to say the Guysborough District Fish & Game Association runby President Nancy Grady was well-organized when it came time to do the resultsand draws. Everything went smoothly and I even had the privilege to participatein some of the draws.


I am invited to participate in next year’s derby – their 30th– as well. Next year is going to be even better. I for one will be there and Ihope you can to.

FISH-ON!
