What a Catch! North Ridgeville Fishing Derby Celebrates Spring

The annual North Ridgeville Fishing Derby was a hit at South Central Park last Saturday morning!

Sunny spring skies and fish that were biting welcomed contestants to a fun morning at the park lake.

The Derby is sponsored by the North Ridgeville Fire Dept., North Ridgeville Fishing Club and North Ridgeville Parks & Rec Dept.

“We had a great event. Over 80 kids,” said Jason Chrosniak of the fire dept. “We had over 200 fish caught, mostly bass and bluegill. We gave away 24 prizes. Our biggest fish was a 13.5” Bass and the most fish caught were 28 total.”

One kid even caught a frog! It was a great day for one and all!…..except for the fish, maybe.
