2017 Cast Away Fishing Derby

We held our 2nd Annual Cast Away Fishing Derby today, luckily the rain  held off till after we was done. We had a great turn out considering the weather and all the kids got to catch fish. Special thanks to the MCI Employee Activities Committee for suppling us with food and fishing poles for the kids. I would also like to thank Joe Kessler, Gerry Bowes, Garriet Haines, Jake Brewer, Scotty Fuqua II and Campo for volunteering to help out with this event.

The “Cast Away” Fishing Derby 2017

We will be hosting a Passport to Fishing Program and Fishing Derby in association with the Ohio Department of Natural Resources and Marion Correction on May 20th 2017.

The Passport to Fishing program provides skills, techniques and information that allows any beginning angler to start fishing in their own community.

Passport to Fishing has been proven to be a successful youth education campaign. Straight forward, effective, inexpensive and FUN. The program consists of four stations where kids will learn a variety of skills from tying fishing knots and rigging a fishing pole to casting, fishing rules, fish habitat and handling fish and concludes with a fishing derby after all stations are completed.

  • Open to kid’s ages 4 to 15
  • Parents or Guardians must be Present.
  • Fun for the Entire Family
  • Door Prizes
  • Loaner Poles available to use during day of the derby
  • Food and Beverages
  • Rain or Shine

Things to Bring:

  • Fishing Poles & Tackle
  • Sun Screen / Block
  • Hat
  • Insect spray / repellant
  • Dress Appropriately for the Weather (Rain Jacket..ETC…)
