On the road with Mike – Wausau, WI kids fishing derby

Sep 16, 2015

Years ago, when it seemed times were much simpler, I remember riding my bike down to the local pond every day and going fishing. I also remember the anticipation of our annual community fishing derby and would, of course, participate each and every year. This was a great event that the entire community would look forward to and enjoy.

I am proud to be a part of the fishing derby for the families in Wausau, WI. For the past 9 seasons Texas Roadhouse in Wausau has been putting on a kids fishing derby that not only lets the kids and families have some fishing fun but also gives back to the County Park where the derby is held.

I have made the trip up north each year and have seen record attendance, kids catch their fist fish, kids learning to fish for the first time and even, some who despite now being too old to participate, donate their time to help out with the event.

This great event never ceases to remind me of my youth and the simpler times that brought the families of a community together to enjoy a great American pastime.


Until next time... See you on the water!
