Kids got outside this afternoon for a little fishing.
Today was the Roch Rock Kendrick Memorial Fishing
Derby at Pettibone Lagoon .
put on by the La Crosse Parks and Recreation department.
The derby is meant to give kids a chance to learn
how to fish with poles and bait provided to them.
Two local kids say they like to go fishing.
Emily: It's fun about it because you get to catch
bigger fish and you.
Elizabeth: it's fun when you get to like pull the
line when you catch more bigger fish.
Emily: yeah, it's fun when you catch a turtle.
This year's derby also included a dedication to a
new wheel chair acessible fishing dock .
donated by the North American Squirell Association.
