Greater Baltimore Chapter Kid’s Catch A Success Once Again

On August 3rd, volunteers from CCA Maryland’s Greater Washington Chapter teamed up with leaders from Baltimore Rec & Parks to host yet another Kid’s Catch at the Canton Waterfront Park/Korean War Memorial.

Over 65 youth joined with parents & volunteer mentors to cast a line into the waters of the harbor.  Spot, white perch, rockfish, and catfish were caught by participants throughout the day, as they enjoyed some beautiful weather.Thanks to the support of Tochterman’s Tackle and new partnership with the Chesapeake Rockfish Open Tournament, the first 30 participants at the event went home with brand new rod and reel combos.   Brian Sabo, of Verdence Capital, one of the founders of the Chesapeake Rockfish Open brought a few volunteers that also helped clean up trash at the park.Bob Wall and his team from Baltimore Recs & Parks brought youth from local rec. centers to the event, and set up a table with various educational fishing games and activities.

The Phillips Wharf Environmental Center bus, the Fish Mobile, came up for the day from Tilghman Island, and brought along many bay species for kids to be able to see up close and personal, and even touch and feel.

The Chesapeake Mermaid also made an appearance, and taught kids about the importance of clean water and being responsible stewards of the very waters where she swims!

Thanks to Trager Grills, CCA volunteer chef Patrick Loughrey spent the morning grilling up hotdogs and serving up lunch for participants.
