All-Ages Fishing Derby
St. John's held its first Fishing Derby this past Satruday, August 20, 2022. We had over 30 participants of a wide range of ages. We awarded several prizes.
The "First Fish Prize" was awarded to Mary, niece of our 8 AM parishioners, the Hooeys, who caught a beautiful 7-inch specimen bass to start our luck moving.
The "Most Fish Caught" Prize went to ultra-local fisherperson Peyton Pollach who landed 3 speicimen bass.
The "Ones that Got Away" Award went to Owen Mitchell, who fed many fish many delicious worms, but landed only one beautiful perch.
...And finally bragging rights and grand price "Biggest Fish" Award goes to Lance Schnieder who landed the largest fish of the day: a 20.5" Trophy Large Mouth Bass.
All fish were returned to the pond after measuring and photos and a great time was had by all. Click through to see the fun photos!
