Here’s a great opportunity to get the kids out of the house for a few hours and spend some quiet bonding.

The Ascarate Fishing Club is hosting the free fishing tournament for kids ages 3 - 16 this Saturday, May 20, and a lack of fishing experience or gear isn't a problem.

Fishing Club members will happily teach kids fishing basics like how to cast, and fishing poles and bait will be provided for registered children to use during the event.

Just take along a cap, sunscreen, bug spray, water, a camping chair or two, and your driver’s license to check out a fishing pole and you're all set.
