This Saturday, First Fruits Farm in Louisburg NC is holding a fishing derby. All ages are welcome, registration is free, and fishing prizes will be awarded.

Make plans to join the fun at this third annual Youth Fishing Derby. The past two years were great successes, and the farm folks are excited to host this enjoyable community event for a third time. Wisdom For Life is partnering with First Fruits Farm to offer this day of fishing and providing food for the event lunch.

Says Jason Brown, founder of First Fruits Farm, “Great weather is in the forecast for this weekend.” Seems like a good time to be fishing!

Top anglers will be awarded prizes, and a raffle will be held during the event.

Those registered to fish may bring one pole to use. Parents may help children only as needed, and are asked to supervise but try to let kids fish on their own as much as possible. This is a “catch and release” event.

During the derby, fishing must be done from the shore or dock in permitted areas. No boats, floats, or rafts are permitted.

To register those who plan to fish for this “tagged fishing” derby, go to this EventBrite page. The fishing derby official rules are included on that link.

As of today, there are 71 Registrations for this 2016 Youth Fishing Derby. The May 28, 2016, event check-in starts at 8am, fishing runs 9am to 11am, weigh-in ends at 11am, and the derby wraps up around noon. The fishing derby will take place at the farm’s pond. First Fruits Farm is located at 832 Mort Harris Road, in Louisburg NC.

Based in Louisburg NC, First Fruits Farm was founded by Jason Brown, a former NFL lineman, to share the love of Christ and aid in hunger relief in eastern North Carolina. His farm’s harvests have helped to feed many hungry families since it opened, with tens of thousands of pounds of sweet potatoes and cucumbers donated locally.
