Kids Catch A Mess Of Fun

Four boat loads of kids ages 8 to 15 caught a lot of fish while participating in the Young Outdoorsmen United free guided fishing trip this weekend.

I got better by the end of the day” quipped 9 year old Chaelynn Stauber, Noel MO. “I did pretty good”.

Some of the youngsters had no problem gathering up the fish and eagerly placing them in the assembly line of electric filet knives for the guides of Reel Time Adventures to put in storage baggies for the kids to transport home.
