It’s a Big One!

| May 6, 2013

The annual Fishing Derby held annually at Lake Park in early May is a huge draw for area youth. The grand prize winners were Amber Nelson, (girls 3-6) along with Hayden Young, (boys 3-6) Braxton Wilson, (boys 7-12) Gwyn Kreider (girls 7-12) and April Masters, (13-16). Bob Bigrigg, speaking for the Coshocton County Sportsmen’s Association, who sponsors the event, said, “It was a great day, we had great participation with 438 registered participants. I would like to thank all of our local businesses and industry for being very generous in regards to their donations. This is probably the most looked forward to event for youth in Coshocton County. It’s a special day, it puts a lot of smiles on kids’ faces, and they look forward to it, no question about that. There is always a lot of anticipation building up to the fishing derby and we were fortunate the Good Lord supplied us with great weather. It was certainly a success again this year. Thanks again to everybody that was involved.” There were a total of 19 tagged fish caught which means there are still plenty to catch!
