Dangerous Women


The annual Ben’s Bait and Tackle Powder Puff Fishing Derby was held on Saturday with many a fish being caught. Some of the most inconspicuous looking women caught healthy sized fish that could feed a whole family.

The tournament started off at 7am and ended at 2pm with 66 total entries and 32 fish caught. Fish could be kept, released or donated to a great looking fish fry prepared by volunteers.
