The first of two kids fishing tournaments for the summer took place June 27 at the Brunswick County Fishing Club at Sunset Harbor and 11 kids participated. Prizes of fishing tackle and rod and reel outfits were awarded for the first and second largest fish and for the largest overall catch in the 8-and-under age group and the 9-12 age group. In addition, prizes were awarded for the ugliest fish caught and the best pictures of fish drawn.  

There will be another fishing tournament from 8 a.m.-noon Aug. 20 for kids through 18 years of age. Prizes will again be awarded in three age groups:  8 and under, 9-12, 13-18.  All kids are invited to participate.
