Get Ready for the Best Fishing Derby Ever!!!!


We are finally here. The Seekonk Lions Club’s Tenth Annual Doug Allan Memorial Fishing Tournament is just a few weeks away. With the best prizes and sponsors in the local community. How do we know that, well the subscribers of this publication rates the Seekonk Lions Fishing Derby #1. And many others as well! That fishing magazine in the store says, “George the Fishing Guy and all his buddies at the Lions Club put on the best derby for sure!”

We already knew that! Going on ten years with a loyal following and new anglers signing up all the time. Local celebrities and dignitaries showing up to make sure we all get a look at their face. They all know where to be. Enjoying the action with the free donuts, hot chocolate and coffee telling fish stories to those who will listen.

The Seekonk Lions Club’s Tenth Annual Doug Allan Memorial Fishing Tournament will be on Patriots Day Monday, April 18, 2022 at the Old Grist Mill Pond RT 114A in Seekonk 9:00am until 11:00am. Open for all children through high school in the area.

Remember this is ten years going strong for the derby! Of course, our friends at the American Legion Post 311 have sponsored our banquet providing the hall for anglers to sit down and relax while enjoying Chick-fil -A sandwiches with cookies, chips and drinks.

If you do not have a fishing pole that is OK. We will have poles available to those who are first timers’ or just want to try it. Different types of bait and accessories are available for everyone. Along with some of the most expert advice in the industry from George the Fishing Guy.

We would like to see all our fellow anglers back this year and some new ones as well. We will have a great time with great fishing with some great prizes as always!

Any questions or if you would like to help/donate or volunteer please email seekonkfishingtournament@yahoo.com.  

Remember there is no charge. Just come with your fishing poles, that special bait you may have, and catch some fish!
