Kids Prepare to Cast Their Lines This Sunday
Lincoln Park Lagoons will be stock full of fish Sunday afternoon as kids from all over the area come out to fish.

Kids up to the age of 15 can come out to the lagoon for this years Galesburg Youth Fishing derby and the Bass Pro Shops Al Hayden says everyone's welcome no matter what your skill level is.

Hayden tells the WGIL morning news before the registration begins there will be a little fishing lesson.

"Things will start off about 10:30 out there where they're gonna have a casting activity and that will be handled by the local chapter of the National Wild Turkey Federation, they're gonna be doing that activity out there and then at 12 o'clock noon the registration lines will start."

Hayden says the rules are very simple.

All the kids have to do is catch a fish. Hayden says size and type doesn't matter just as long as you catch a fish.

Once a fish is caught the kids can take the fish and their ticket to a prize table and pick a prize.
