Hold the date! On June 7th, the Chebacco Lake & Watershed Association will be holding its first Family Fishing Derby in partnership with Big Daddy’s Bait ‘N’ Tackle. Fishing veterans and newbies are all welcome! We’re celebrating the beauty of Chebacco Lake and hoping to spark youngsters’ enthusiasm for fishing and the outdoors.
Details will be posted soon but here’s what we can share: The derby will be open from 8 to 1. Prizes of $150/75/50/25 will be awarded with the lower three prizes likely restricted to entrants 16 and under. A $10 entry fee must be paid in advance at Big Daddy’s Bait ‘N’ Tackle at 9 Wenham Street, Danvers. Big Daddy’s will weigh your catch anytime through the derby hours so you can fish-and-release if you wish. Free coffee and water stations will be available on the lake.
Join us for a fun day! Bring the kids!
