2015 Kids Fishing Derby
The Bridgeport area is home to some of the best trout fishing in the U.S and we at MCCS think it's important to take advantage of the unique offerings provided by this incredible landscape. We also love to see Marine families having fun! For these reasons the MWTC MCCS team hosted the 2015 Fishing Derby for Kids! On Saturday May 16th, families were invited out to 'the pond' on base for a day of fishing, food, and prizes. Through the incredible support of the Bridgeport Fish Enhancement Foundation the pond was stocked three weeks prior with trout weighing up to 10 lbs.! The Foundation also donated enough brand new Shakespeare fishing poles that every child who participated went home with one. MCCS also received support from; Sportsman's Warehouse, Berkley Fishing, The Walker Country Store, Ken's Sporting Goods, and Desert Springs Hatchery! This event would not have been possible without the support from these organizations. Thank you all so much!
Everyone was a winner on Saturday but our biggest fish weighed in at over 8lbs! Check out some great pictures from the event and if you’re with us in Bridgeport next year look out for the derby!
