Pike County Kids and Great Fishing

We at Shotem and Caughtem could not be more excited when we hear these three words.  Kids, outdoors and competition.  So when we read this story we felt it was worth repeating.  We only hope that some of our younger ones will take apart of sharing their bragging rights here on Shotem and Caughtem in the galleries.

Girls took the top prizes in all three age divisions at the 2013 Pike County Kids’ Fishing Day at Clay Hill Farms and they did so with flair and style.

The winner in each age division was determined by the total weight of their stringer of fish.

Autumn Adamson won the five to seven age division with 10 fish weighing 16 pounds. Brianna Adkinson caught nine fish that weighed 12 pounds to take the prize in the age eight and nine division. The age 11-13 division champ was Haley Middlebrooks with 10 fish at 13 pounds.

Pike County Conservation Officer Jerry Jinright congratulated the winners of the fishing competition as well as all of the boys and girls who came out to participate. He also expressed appreciation to the parents and other adults who spent a morning fishing with the children.

“We had a very good turnout for the free Kids’ Fishing Day this year,” Jinright said. “We had 68 kids who caught 170 catfish with a total weight of 223 pounds. The fish were biting and everyone seemed to have a good time.”
