The 19th annual Senior Fishing Derby was a great success, with over a 125 reservations accounted for. The weather was great the bait was plentiful, the fish were plentiful. The winners of the Senior Fishing Derby were: Oldest Fisherwoman –91 years young Violet Diaglin; Biggest Fish – Was Urbert Yancy and the most fish was caught by Willie Mae Brown. They were catching a lot of bigger fish, (catch and release) The Florida Wildlife had stocked lake Tuscawilla with catfish for the Junior Fishing Day.

Thank-You to the City Senior Center, for coordinating the event. Thank you to the city crew for the set up and clean up. Thank you to Parks security and wild life officers. Thanks to BJ Trophy’s for the trophy’s and many sponsors. It is always a great day when you can get people out in the park for a picnic and a morning of fishing. A good time was had by all.
