ARTHUR LEM MEMORIAL KISMET SNAPPER DERBY
Photos by Jeannie & Bradlee
The 96 degree heat was almost
unbearable to all but our intrepid fishers. 70 Jr. anglers participated and brought
31 snappers (Baby Bluefish)
to scale. The derby waters were well chummed
starting at 9:00 am by Weight Master Chris. Hence, the first Snapper was
brought to scale at 10:06 by 6 year old Tess. The
event ran from 10:00 am - to the "noon" fire house whistle
The biggest fish awards went to 6 year
old Elizabeth who took top honors in both her age group and overall Biggest
Fish taking home an arm full of trophies and prizes!
always and forever indomitable Rose Lem
hosting the drunk and talentless at the Talent show
and listening to his non stop hilarious
commentary to the kids this IS a man for
all seasons and ages…just walk behind him for an hour – a treat!
The grownups deserve a lot of credit in that
How’m I doing???

Awww, this poor child was so into it she
stepped forward for a better angle and fell in! (I think she’s more embarrassed
than anything else)
