2018 North Ridgeville Corn Festival, Fishing Derby

NORTH RIDGEVILLE, OH – After last year’s epic catch (you can read about that here), we were pretty excited over the fishing derby that takes place as part of the North Ridgeville Corn Festival.  The derby, ran by the great folks from the North Ridgeville Fishing Club are always a joy to be around and do a fantastic job coordinating the event.  The fishing this year was very slow but my son still enjoyed himself by using a small net to catch minnows which he then placed in a bucket.  These ‘pet’ fish provided him plenty of entertainment and he recruited many other peers to assist in the effort.  All of the kids in the area we fished had a lot of fun whether they were catching or not.  Had my son allowed me to use one of his pets as bait, I could have likely helped him have success fishing, but he was not having any of that.  We did see a number of Bluegill caught, surely enough for some good competition for the age groups.  See you next year!
