Coleto Creek to host kids fishing tourney
The 21st annual Coleto Creek Kids Fishing Tournament will be held Saturday, June 7, from 7 a.m. to 12 noon at the Coleto Creek Park. The park is located at 365 Coleto Park Road, between Victoria and Goliad, off Highway 59.
The event is open to all youth between the ages of 2 and 16. No registration fee is required, however all children must officially register by 9 a.m. on June 7 to be eligible for tournament prizes.
Prizes will be awarded for the heaviest stringer in each of four age groups, (2-6 years, 7-9 years, 10-12 years, and 13-16 years). Youth are also recognized for the overall largest fish, largest bass, largest catfish, and largest crappie. Two additional prizes for the smallest perch will be given to age groups 2-6 years and 7-9 years.
This year’s sponsors include Academy Sports & Outdoors, GDF Suez -- Coleto Creek Power, the Buddy Hartl Memorial Fund, TPWD Game Warden Association, and the Coleto Bassmasters.
“Our event targets both young people and adults to help them discover the joys of fishing, and further develop an appreciation for our lakes, rivers, and the wildlife that live in and around them,” said T. J. Hinojosa, Coleto Creek reservoir ranger.
“In the 2013 Coleto Creek event, over 200 children participated and all of them went away winners,” said Hinojosa.
