Results From 2017 Seekonk Lions Fishing Derby


The Seekonk Lions Club held its Fifth Annual Doug Allan Fishing Tournament on Patriots day to a gathering of kids both young and old hoping to have the best catch of the day.
Good crowd, great weather (a bit of a breeze) and our anglers caught over 40 fish on Monday April 17th. We all had a great time! And we had all the fixings! We had hot coffee and hot chocolate from Young's Caterers. We had Honey Dew Donuts and hot dogs by Seekonk Stop and Shop. Embrace Home Loans donated sunglasses and lip balm. We also like to thank the Seekonk DPW for supplying our sound system and construction cones for the day.
Plus all our great prize sponsors...Bennys, Popular Pizza, Purple Cow, Natalie’s Pizza, Michelletti’s Restaurant, Bass Pro Shops, Wild Wings, Seekonk Grand Prix, Skyzone Trampoline Park, Chick-Fil-A, Orange Leaf FROYO, and Ryan Amusements. Also a big thank you to The Grist Mill Tavern for the support we get every year.
We had four categories of fishing champions this year. Winning with biggest trout was Steven Morgado with a 14.5”.Second place went to Cecelia Jarosz with a lean 12” rainbow. Kaiden Medas caught a 10” respectfully.
Tying with the most Hornpout were Chloe Bo and Aiden Cordeiro. All morning it was a back and forth match between these two. Aiden was an experienced angler, but first timer Chloe got superb training from her cousin and last year’s champ Sophia and her Grandfather. Sophia and Lily McCormick had honorable catches.
Topping the Sunfish Category, we have Cameron Manchester with a total of five and Ava Morgado and Shane Gomes pulling in a few each. Last but not least, the Perch category had winners in Mason Morgado and Austin Gamboa. An interesting note of accomplishment goes to Cecelia Jarosz as she caught a fish in every category!
The Seekonk Lions would like to thank all our volunteers for a great job. We look forward to seeing you all next year.
