Guam - The second fishing derby of the summer for kids only was held at the Governors Complex in Adelup. The annual event draws a big group of kid's ages 7 to 12 along with their families. The purpose of the event is to teach kids how to properly fish and learn about the catch and release program here on island.

Brent Tibbetts, GDA, told KUAM Sports, "We are here today holding our 18th fishing derby for kids only. This is an event we hold twice a year every summer for kid's ages 7-12 for a chance to get them out and teach them how to fish. They are competing for trophies and prizes today and getting some lunch and drinks. Everybody is having a good time. We've tried some different beaches this year and in the pass we've done Asan Beach most of the time and our first derby of the summer was down at Nimitz Beach in Agat and this derby is here at Adelup over at the governor's complex.

"We try some different areas to see how the fishing is and see how the support is for our staff and the parents and guardians and so far this looks like a nice area. They are competing for trophies today along with other prizes and fishing gear donated by a variety of vendors. For information on this, this will be the last derby of 2012 and we will be having 2 in 2013 and you can call us at the Department of Agriculture at 735-3955 or 735-3956 for information."
