Young Anglers Fishing Contest


The Wilson family is getting ready for another big Fourth of July Young Anglers' Fishing

Contest! As in previous years the contest is free and is for children, grandchildren or

relatives of association members 15 years of age or younger. Children 12 or younger

must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Fishing will begin at 8:30 a.m. and

conclude at 10:30 a.m. when weigh-in begins. Note the time change from previous years!

Prizes will be awarded in each age group-- the number of groups will depend upon the

number of participants . The prizes will be for the most weight for all fish caught by an

individual angler, and for the longest fish. Each angler is allowed up to an aggregate total

of 25 bluegills, sunfish, or pumpkinseed to be weighed, which will be the only species

qualified for the prizes. There is no size limit and a fishing license is not required for ages 15 and under.

Anglers must provide their own bait and tackle. Fishing is limited to Horsehead and the John Browns. You

may fish from shore, dock or boat depending upon your individual preference. Adults may assist the youth

only by baiting the hook, casting it out and unhooking the fish. All fish entered must be caught and lifted out

of the water with a rod in the hand of the youth.

Participants must register for the contest. You may pre-register prior to the event, which is preferable and

allows the Association to determine the number of prizes needed, You may also register at the boat launch

on the day of the contest. Be there a little early so you donít miss out on any valuable fishing time. If you want

to pre-register email your childís name and age to Tom Wilson tmwlsn23@yahoo.com

Annual Boat Parade


The Annual HLA Boat Parade will take place July 4th.

Donít let this be the last boat parade!

It was decided due to lack of entries over the years that this year we will have a preregistration

with 15 being the minimum for the boat parade to be held. The theme this year

will be America the Beautiful. To pre-register you can email Barb Yount at

byount@centturytel.net or call 231-972-5117.
