Fishermen ages 6 to 15 have their own event, the Kids’ Fishing Tourney, in November. Held the day after Thanksgiving, fishermen angle for trout, bass, flounder, spot, and others. Participants can fish from the marina docks, a boat, in the surf, your private fishing hole, or from the Maxwell Memorial Bridge. There’s no entry fee, but fishermen must supply their own rod, reel, and tackle. Prizes are given for the largest fish in each category. November 25, 2022.
