My wife Barbara, our pup Mulligan and I were honored to once again participate in the 12th Annual ICHA Handicapable Fishing Derby, Windsor, ON. This year’s event saw the addition of several sponsors which made the event even bigger and better.
[nggallery id=938]The weather conditions were ideal and the fish cooperated in great numbers with some of the participants catching up to 20-fish each! The fish caught included; white bass & white perch, bullhead catfish, rock bass and a mix of other fish species.
The event was started by our good friend Pat Pagano and each year hundreds of families that have physically & mentally challenged family members take the opportunity to spend a morning fishing on the beautiful Windsor, ON waterfront where they are provided fishing outfits, bait, life jackets, and volunteer supervision. In addition to the fishing there are many displays that include large inflatable props, mini-put, fishing tackle craft displays, food concessions, and live entertainment provided by Music Express.
