Sagamore Yacht Club held its annual junior snapper derby on Saturday morning, Sept. 12. This event is open to children, grandchildren and other relatives of members of SYC. In spite of the rainy weather, children arrived [ with parents] ready and eager to catch fish.
This event takes place on the Sagamore Yacht Club dock. All children are required to wear lifejackets. Rods and bait are supplied by the club when needed. A good deal of help is available from club members as needed.
Participants ranged in age from 2 to 11 years old.
The fish were very cooperative on Saturday morning. Each participant caught several fish which included snappers, fluke and porgies. All fish are released and put back into the water.
The three-hour Derby ended with a pizza party and prizes for all.
