The Kids Fishing Derby is a fun family event at Cape Coral's Yacht Club Beach.
Since Cape Coral is known for great fishing, you may want to get your children involved with this sport, and if you haven't fished before, this is a good place to start.
There are several fishing derbies in Cape Coral, but this particular one is put on by Cape Coral's Kiwanis Club.
It takes place on March 19, 2022, right on the Yacht Club Beach pier, from 8:30AM-11:30AM for ages 5-15. No advance registration is necessary and there is no cost.
Each child needs to bring their own fishing rod and tackle ........ and bringing their Dad or Grampa wouldn't hurt either!
It was so much fun to see all the children lined up on the pier with their fishing rods and lines.
The child who wins is the one who gets the most fish that are bigger than 3" .......... and alive!
Officials measure each fish that is caught and brought forward from each contestant.
When I went to the fishing derby, the kid in the lead was one little girl who had caught 12 fish, and there was half an hour left to go in the competition.
I wouldn't be surprised if she won. One little boy was so proud of his catch!
Prizes include passes to Sunsplash or Zoomers, gift certificates to movies, and merchandise.
Cape Coral fishing has never been so much fun ........... for children, for adults, and for everyone.
