I am really enthused about this event. After expressing interest in adding a S.F. Bay Area kids derby to the president of the IGFA a few years back at the San Diego kids derby, it's finally happening! It is an honor and a privilege to have a derby in the bay co-sponsored by the International Game Fishing Association. I urge anyone with any young ones that enjoy fishing to come on out and join the festivities. I am going to try and get my nieces and nephew to join in this event if they are available on the date as Berkeley is the pier where I got my start and developed my love for fishing and the great outdoors.

Let the junior games begin! "Let them play!" or whatever it was Walter Matthau used to say on "The Bad News Bears."...

Good show for all who attended! Dave, your participation brought energy to the event... A tough season for the kid's to fish at BP but thankfully they were able to catch some smelt and surprisingly, a black perch was caught by one..
