Fishing Derby reels in fun…and fish

by | May 27, 2021 | Other News

After a COVID-induced one-year absence, the Simon Family JCC Catch-and-Release Fishing Derby was held Sunday, May 23 on the Sandler Family Campus. This was the fourth time the Derby was held on Lake Sandler, but the first time it was held in the spring, which may have had a hand in the fantastic fishing for the 50 participants that practically perfect afternoon.

Anglers of all ages enjoyed abundant catches under sunny skies. More than 40 prizes and raffle items added to the excite-ment of landing big largemouth bass, sun fish, and cat fish. JCC member Taylor Reynolds reeled in the largest catch of the day with a 4 lb. 8 oz. largemouth bass.
