Kids compete in fishing contest in Presque Isle
PRESQUE ISLE - Every summer people in Presque Isle urge fisherman to get their kids out on the lakes.

Those kids got the chance to cast a line and learn fishing tips from some of the community's best.

The kids who caught the most and the biggest fish won.

The chamber hopes the contest gets kids excited to be on the lake.

"We like to see kids getting active and being outside and participating in our wonderful environment. We like to encourage kids to be out and encourage the next generation of fisher-people," said Presque Isle Chamber of Commerce Director Scott McPherson.

The competition is also sponsored by the Presque Isle Lions Club.

The Lions members started the competition to try and get kids away from the video games. 

"When I first started coming up in this country, we didn't have the internet; all we had was fishing. We had lots of good fishing and it's still here if we just had people fish," said Presque Isle Lions Club member Wayne McDonald.

Each kid got a fishing certificate and a tackle box for competing.

There will be two more competitions this summer.

One is at the end of July and the other is the first week in August.
