The 19th annual Mid-South Youth Camp Fishing Rodeo will be Saturday, May 9, from 8:00am to 1:00pm at the campgrounds on Highway 45 North. Children aged six through 16 are invited to come to the camp’s lake and try their hand at fishing for cash and other prizes.

Entry fee is $15 per child. Participants are required to bring rods and reels; bait will be available for purchase at the event. Food and drink concessions will also be for sale. Participants will be divided into age categories, with prizes being awarded to the top finishers in each category, based on overall weight caught. First place in each category will be awarded $150; second place, $125; and third place, $100. In addition, $50 will be awarded for the day’s first catch of an albino catfish and $50 for the biggest fish caught by any fisherman.

According to Frank Bradford, director, the camp is in session for eight weeks each summer, with weeks available for junior campers as well. For more information, contact Bradford at fbradford@fhu.edu, 731-989-6987 or 731-435-0177.
