Chickasaw Fish Rodeo

 

This is a story about fierce competition on the water…and a chance at really big fish! Well, half of the story happened that way… when Wild Side Guide Craig Owensby went to Chickasaw State Park,¬† just south of Jackson, for a young people’s fishing rodeo. While the action was actually pretty relaxed, the lake really did have some bragging size fish just waiting for the kids to catch them.

Even though none of the young anglers caught “the big one” this time, the more they fish, the better they’ll get. And those eight and nine-pound largemouth the lake is known for are still out there waiting for them. But to put it all in perspective, for kids that age catching a big fish isn’t as important as just getting to go fishing! For them, even a little brim is a trophy.
