May 7 – Fishin’ Buddies Derby

Grab your fishing pole and head over to Gilbert Run Park for the Fishin’ Buddies Derby on May 7. This is a great fishing event for children. There’s no need to have previous fishing experience to have a good time and create memories.
Fishin’ Buddies Derby teams — consisting of one adult (21 or older) and one child (age 6-15) — will compete in two different age divisions for largest and most bluegill, crappie and bass, with a special award for trout and catfish.
Bank anglers will compete separately from those who fish from a boat.
In the wooded park, there are picnic areas with grills and tables, pavilions, playground areas, paddle boats rentals, a kayak launch, snack concession stand and nature trails.
Bring the family and enjoy a day outdoors.
The event will be from 7am-12:30pm at Gilbert Run Park at 13140 Charles St. in Charlotte Hall.
The fee is $10. There are 90 spots available. Register online at charlescountymd.myrec.com. Call 301-932-3470 for more information.
