A local fishing club is seeking captains and their boats who can help kids participate in the Fall Children’s Fishing Classic set for Saturday, Oct. 9.

Woody Malone of North Georgia Crappie Anglers said the tournament has openings for 100 children, ages 6 through 15.

“The kids will get a rod and reel plus a certificate of participation,” Malone said. Lunch will be provided and trophies will be given for the largest crappie, bream, bass, catfish, spotted bass, and striper.

TV personality and Lakeside columnist O’Neill Williams will be honorary tournament chairman.

Malone said the tournament will begin at first light at Bolding Mill Park and all youngsters will be supervised by an accompanying adult or club member.

To help as a captain (with boat) or for more information, contact Garree Williamson, garreeg@gmail.com, or 270 963-8614.
