Algoma fishing competition teaches lessons to the next generation.

A local fishing competition provides children and their families the opportunity to win prizes while also learning life lessons. The Algoma Shanty Day’s Fishing Contest kicked off on August 7th and runs through August 11th. The competition is open to children and adults of all ages and has the opportunity to win more than $1,000 worth of cash and prizes. The money and prize items are not the only things participants will receive though, they will also have the opportunity to learn environmental and conservation lessons as well. Tournament organizer Kevin Naze says that he started this event over 30 years ago as a way to give back to the community where he grew up.

 

 

Tickets for the event range in price from $3 to $10 and all tickets are entered in the random drawing. The award ceremony will be at 9 A.M. on August 11th and Naze says that everyone who attends the ceremony will go home with some sort of prize. If you would like to find out more information on the Shanty Day’s Fishing Contest you can visit their website or Facebook page.
