 FISHERMAN OF THE WEEK – LUCAS WOOD CLAIMS FISH OF THE WEEK STATUS FOR THE THIRD TIME

WESTERN KY (08/28/16) -Over the past couple of months, a local 7-year-old has claimed the title of Fisherman of the Week Status twice with big fish catches during SOS Ministries (Tyler Foster Branch) fishing tournaments for local children. On Sunday, August 28, Lucas Wood stepped forward for the third time to claim that title once more.

Three times so far, Lucas has proudly brought in the biggest fish. This week’s fish was a large catfish. Lucas competed against Elijah Arndell of Greenville and James Graham of Russellville. Although Lucas caught the biggest, all three boys brought in several catfish, drum and bluegill.

This week’s prize was a valued donation of $20.00 by local Christian Leona Foster. Lucas won $10.00 and the other two took home $5.00 each for their successful fishing competition. A great time was had by all three children.

SOS Ministries staff stated that, “It was an incredible day to see the smiles on these little guys’ faces as they reeled in one fish after another. There is nothing more fulfilling than seeing joy in the eyes of our local children.”

A congratulations goes out to Lucas Wood for his amazing catch and to the other two boys for their successful day of natural fun. Also, a very special thanks goes out to Mrs. Foster for donating the prizes for these children.
