Fishing Derby Recap

Posted on May 19 2015 - 8:54am

The fish were biting big time! Many new records were set for the number of fish caught and the largest fish, over 21 inches long! We’ll announce the awards at the next troop meeting and Scouts can claim any gear they left behind.

The Hawkman from Captain Bob’s Outdoors in Clarence came and taught the scouts some fishing secrets, helped scouts set up their fishing gear and told some awesome stories.

After a busy Saturday morning catching fish, we broke for lunch. We even filleted a fish, coated it with a mix of crushed potato chips and tortilla chips and cooked it for the scouts to taste. Then the scouts held a can-jam tournament and an axe chopping contest, while others went on an orienteering hike, worked on merit badges, as well as scoutmaster conferences and board of review for advancement. And the fish were still biting.
