Reel ’em in at the Annual Fishing Derby

by | May 5, 2022 | What’s Happening

Sunday, May 22, 1–4 pm, Sandler Family Campus

Anglers get that gear ready for the Simon Family JCC’s Catch and Release Fishing Derby at Lake Sandler. This is the one day of the year that the public is invited to the Sandler Family Campus to fish on its private lake and compete for great prizes. An all-ages competition, the Annual Fishing Derby is equally fun for avid fishermen as for first-timers.

Shore cast for largemouth bass, catfish, and blue gills in this catch-and-release experience. Prizes are given every hour for biggest fish in three age groups. (Under 9, 10-55, and over 56.)

Lifejackets, bait, lures, and light snacks will be available. A raffle and prizes will be given every hour. Children under 13 must be accompanied by an adult. Entry fee of $10 per angler includes use of the Simon Family JCC for the entire day.

For sign-up or questions, visit the JCC Front Desk, or call 757-321-2308.
