On Saturday April 18th The Pasco County Parks and Recreation Department put on their Annual Anclote Kids Fishing Tournament at the Anclote Gulf Park Pier. The event was sponsored by the V.F.W. Post 10167 in Holiday.
Seven Fish-On Club members volunteered to take on the fish measuring and registration duties. Thanks to Larry Kuhn, Terry Freeman, Jack Hexter, Ernie Philippi,
Jean Uffalussy, Mike Brumley, and Roger DePauw.
There were about 25 fish caught, longest was a 17 1/2 inch needlefish.
How they did it I don’t know, but Roger, Ernie, and Larry managed to go
the whole morning without measuring a single fish.
After a while people started migrating out of their section of the pier (in the middle).
There were 18 trophies awarded across three age groups from 3-16.
Also, every child attending received a prize drawn from their registration ticket.
