 VIDEO SLIDESHOW - Hundreds Show up for Lake Malone Fishing with Kids Contest

KENTUCKY (06/20/15) – Despite the early morning rain, a massive turnout was experienced on Saturday, June 20, at Lake Malone for the annual Fishing with Kids Contest.

KenCo News was very fortunate to be on the scene of this event from start to finish, as local children from Muhlenberg and surrounding counties had an awesome time with parents, family and friends pulling in catfish, bass, bluegill, crappie, and even turtles.

Officials on the scene told reporters that an estimation of nearly 300 children were present, not including all the adults.

Hundreds of prizes were given away in drawings and trophies were given for those that won the contests.

Below is a rather lengthy video (18 minutes) of children showing their fish, accepting trophies and accepting prizes from drawings. Generally we like to keep our videos short and sweet, but with all the prizes given away, there were so many photo opportunities.

The video slideshow is below. Watch and enjoy!
