14th Annual Snapper Derby
Saturday, August 16, 2008


On Saturday, August 16, 2008 Bayside Anglers Group Ltd. hosted its 14th Annual Snapper Derby at Bayside Marina. Neighborhood kids were invited to come and experience classic Little Neck Bay fishing. BAG was able to introduce well over 80 kids (and their families) to the joys of catch and release fishing available right in their own backyard.

Check out pictures of a sea of smiling faces and you will know what a success this event was. Thanks to all our sponsors, to our friends who helped, and especially to the kids in attendance whose smiles and spirit made it all worthwhile.
