Families Flock to Kellogg Lake for Kid’s Fishing Day
Fishermen of all ages cast their lines at Kellogg Lake for the 14th annual kids fishing day.
A week before the lake in Carthage was closed to the public to allow conservationists, the hatchery and the local rotary club to put in a thousand catfish ready to bite
Free worms were donated by the local Bud’s Bait. Mentors were on hand teaching first timers how it’s done.
Children didn’t have a hard time reeling in some big ones early on.
“I like fishing because when I catch a fish, I can say ‘fish on!” says nine-year-old Gracie Still.
Six-year-old Hayden Ford says “my favorite thing about fishing was when I caught the fish.
I caught two and I also reeled I in fast so they could come in.”
All anglers big and small were allowed to fish without a fishing license, as part of Missouri’s “Free Fishing Day.”
