The Charles County Department of Recreation, Parks, and Tourism will sponsor the 2017 annual fall Fishin' Buddies Derby at Gilbert Run Park in Dentsville, on Saturday, Oct. 14, from 7 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
Anglers will compete by teams, which must include one adult at least 21 years of age and one child between the ages of 6 and 15. Each team must supply their own rods and bait. Trophies will be awarded in the two age divisions. Bank anglers will compete separately from those who fish from a boat. Local businesses have donated numerous fishing-related door prizes. All teams are eligible for the door prize drawings. Lunch will be provided to all participants.
The entry fee is $7 per team. Pre-registration is required since participation is limited.
