Kids Enjoy Annual Kiwanis Fishing Derby

Posted: Updated:

LAWTON, Okla._

It was all about finding the biggest catch and earning bragging rights during Saturday's annual Kiwanis Fishing Derby.

About 75 kids from the Lawton Boys and Girls Club spent the day at the Veterans Center along Flowermound and Gore with their fishing poles in tow.

Only kids with the best behavior get a chance to come out and fish and play as a fun summer time reward.

Organizers say the event seems to be a great motivator for the kids to strive to be on their best behavior year after year.

"It's nice to see kids that are doing better and growing and they learn that hey it's fun we enjoy getting to do things and be better people," said Program Coordinator Jarrod Mclaughlin.

Mclaughlin said passing along his love of fishing is what keeps him excited about the event year after year.
