Helping Out at the Gambrill Youth Rodeo
Location: Gambrill Rock Run Pond
The Gambrill Fishing Rodeo @ Rock Run Pond was last Saturday morning and it had a terrific turnout. 30 some kids showed up out of the 40 that were supposed to, and almost all of them caught a fish. The ones who didn't, I know still had a fun time. The Rodeo got great donations from Penn, Rapala, Friends of Cunningham and a few others. We had about 15 - 20 rods donated, which were given out to kids randomly. Each kid took home a goodie bag with some decent Rapalas and some other fishing stuff. I saw an old buddy there, and the kid he was helping out caught his limit in no more than 20 minutes. After about an hour, the fishing turned down, and fish were just being caught here and there; a couple people were still pulling them out though. I helped out numerous people with tangles, how to fish, and un-snagging their lures. The biggest fish of the tournament was probably either a 16 inch rainbow caught by the kid mentioned above. There was also another big(ger) fish caught by a boy on the other side of the lake. I didn't get to see it, but it looked like a good 16 or 17 inches. All in all, it was a very good tournament, everyone left with smiles on their faces.
Whenever, wherever you get a chance to help out or volunteer…take it, it gives you warm feeling inside that you did something right.
