By Fort Meade Public Affairs OfficeOctober 18, 2012
FORT GEORGE G. MEADE, Md. (Oct. 18, 2012) -- Nearly 100 young anglers crowded the banks and piers of Burba Lake on Saturday for the Youth Fishing Rodeo.
The biannual event was hosted by the Directorate of Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation and the Meade Rod and Gun Club.
In addition to the catfish and bass normally swimming about, the Maryland Department of Natural Resources stocked the lake with hungry bluegills the night before the event to improve fishing.
Fishermen were separated into three age groups: 3 to 6, 7 to 11 and 12 to 15.
Medals and fishing rods were presented for the three biggest catches in each age group. The smallest catch of the day was also awarded.
Youth Fishing Rodeo:
* Ages 3 to 6: Nigel Latimore, 285-gram bass
* Ages 7 to 11: Dezi Rodriguez, 370-gram bass
* Ages 12 to 15: Raymond Trendle, 455-gram catfish
* Smallest catch: Jacob Simpson, 25-gram bluegill
