Fish are Biting at Montclair Kids Annual Fishing Derby


On July 22, 2017, the Montclair Police Athletic League (MPAL) and Montclair Policeman’s Benevolent Association (PBA) Local 53 once again hosted the Kids Annual Fishing Derby in partnership with the Montclair Anglers, Eureka Lodge #52 (PHA), and Montclair Recreation. The derby was well attended by over 120 youth of the community, parents, and friends. After receiving a safety briefing, and casting class/contest from the Montclair Anglers, the majority of the youth were able to catch at least one fish, many caught several. Prizes were awarded for the 1st fish caught, largest fish caught, the most fish caught (18), and furthest cast. In preparation for the event, the pond was restocked by a local hatchery, thanks to PBA Local 53. At the close of the competition, cold drinks and pizza were provided for all. Please like us on Facebook (Montclair Police Athletic League), and visit our website www.montclairpal.org for future events.
