2017 July 4th Fishing Derby

Despite a very deary beginning and ultimately a full fledge downpour , we had a total of 35 young people at Konehete Park at the Fishing Derby 2017 .  The Murphy Rod and Gun  Club members Tom Coy, Glen Gayle, Mark Graham, Chuck Hoesch and Mary Ann Hoesch provided bait and encouragement at the annual 4th of July Fishing Derby. 

At the end of a downpour we had two winners.   Jersei Schwalm caught the biggest fish measuring 18 3/4 inches while Luke Schroeder won the most fish with 7 and the smallest at 4 inches. 

Despite the weather and the fact that all the participants were soaked to the skin, a good time was had by all.
