NORTH RIDGEVILLE, OH – The tradition continued with Bryce and I participating in the fishing derby on the Saturday morning of the North Ridgeville Corn Festival. I sound like a broken record giving praise to the very nice folks of the North Ridgeville Fishing Club, who always are generous of their time in providing such a great experience for young anglers. Whether you have a lot of success and land that trophy fish like Bryce did this one time, or if you just catch a few, it is always a fantastic time. The fishing was a little slow (just a few Bluegill) for us this year, but my son had a blast netting crayfish, minnows, and tadpoles. In fact, I think he looks forward to this more than actually fishing. By the end of the day, he had recruited an army of kids collecting critters who only passively were paying attention to their rods. They were having fun and I’m certain that is all that matters. To those kids pictured above who did put their time and effort into fishing and earned an award, congratulations! I am so happy the club was able to reward you with some awesome gear!
We’ll see you next year!
