Lee County- 100 children participated in the annual Fishing Fantasy host by the Lee County Chamber of Commerce and the Lee County Sertoma Club.

They spent the day casting their lines into the pond at Mossy Dell Plantation, and were awarded for biggest and smallest fish. But no one could top Draven Lackey who caught 14 fish and 2 turtles.

"I concentrate how the fish get on there, and sometimes when the fish is on there they get loose. We kept on having trouble getting one," Lackey admits.

She also says loading her pole with extra worms helped her get the biggest catch of the day.

All of the proceeds of the event benefit the Lee County Library.
