All kids under the age of 15 are invited to fish in the Huck Finn Kids Fishing Derby, scheduled for this weekend, on August 13 at the Huntington Beach Pier. The event is free for all kids and there are thousands of dollars worth of prizes up for grabs.
Young anglers are encouraged to compete in the tournament from 9 a.m. to noon.
“Bust out your favorite Huck Finn-era costume and you could win the prize for best-dressed angler.”
There are prizes for the largest fish caught by the various age groups as well as other cool stuff to take home. Prizes include fishing trips, fishing tackle, rods and reels and more.
Anglers are broken up into three categories depending on their age. The age groups are seven and under, eight through 11 and 12 through 15.
Registration begins at 8 a.m. Take advantage of this opportunity to spend some time with a young angler. Come on down to the pier and introduce your son, daughter or grandchild to the great sport of fishing.
The event is hosted by Let’s Go Fishing at the Huntington Beach Pier owners Cliff and Marian Johnson, and sponsored by Newport Landing Sportfishing, United Anglers of Southern California, Davey’s Locker, Sportfish Restoration and the California Department of Fish and Game.
