ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Hundreds of children headed to the Marine Base Saturday for a little fishing.

MCLB held their 22nd annual Buddy Fishing Tournament at Covella Pond.

Kids, some with the assistance of their parents, baited their hooks in hopes of reeling in a big catch.

The free event was for children fifteen and under, 9-year-old Miguel Orozco was able to catch four catfish within the first two hours.

"I've been having fun all day this is my first time fishing up here with my grandpa," said Miguel Orozco, 9-year-old.

"We enjoy it quite a bit, for the little ones when they catch something it's fun to watch their expressions, and now that my son is 6-years-old he's really enjoying it," said Jacob Hammond, father.

They kept everything they caught.

All children had to be accompanied by an adult and trophies were awarded to both boys and girls for biggest catfish and most catfish caught.
