Kids fishing derby reels in crowd

By Mike Haberle

RIB MOUNTAIN (WAOW) -- Kids in Rib Mountain grabbed their rods and reels for an afternoon of fun Saturday. It was the 4th annual Texas Roadhouse Fishing Derby.

Kids ages 5 through 12 dropped their lines at Bill Gill Bay Park. They even got some tips from a professional bass fisherman.

The event cost $5 for each amateur angler. All proceeds will be donated to the Wausau Marathon County Parks, Recreation, and Forestry Department.

After fishing, the kids enjoyed a cookout party provided by Texas Roadhouse.
