From WSJ Staff Reports

The Wake Forest Parks, Recreation & Cultural Resources Department will host a Virtual Bass Fishing Tournament for ages 13 and older and a Virtual Youth Fishing Tournament for ages 12 and under May 10-23. Over this two-week period, local anglers are encouraged to visit any public fishery in Wake or Franklin county to try and catch the biggest fish. Participants in the Youth Fishing Tournament may catch any species of fish, while anglers in the Bass Fishing Tournament will be limited to bass only. 

Online registration for both tournaments is available through Thursday, April 22, at https://wakeforestnc.recdesk.com/Community/Home. The cost to participate is $10 for the bass tournament and $5 for the youth tourney. Participants in the bass tourney will receive a fishing scale to be used in the competition, while contestants in the youth tournament will receive an “Early Fisherman” packet. 

Fishing scales and “Early Fisherman” packets will be available for pickup on Thursday, May 6, from 10 a.m.-noon and 5-7 p.m. at Joyner Park Community Center, 701 Harris Road. During pickup, please remain in your vehicle, and a PRCR staff member will deliver your items to you. 

Contestants in both tournaments are invited to share their photos through the online form on the Town website at http://bit.ly/PRCRVirtualFishingTourney.

Bass Fishing Tournament participants (ages 13 and older) can qualify to win first, second and third place prizes by submitting a picture of themselves and their largest fish on the provided scale. The weight on the scale must be visible in the photo and calculated in pounds. Photo submissions from participants in both tournaments will be displayed on the Town of Wake Forest Facebook page. For more information, contact Community Center Supervisor Grayson Pridgen at 919-554-6726 or gpridgen@wakeforestnc.gov.
