Look out Randall Tharpe and Bobby Lane! The first tournament of the year for the 2012 Bass Fishing Kids – Broward County trail took place Feb. 4 at Tradewinds Park. Forty three young anglers took to the water to showcase their skills. Each fisherman received a goody bag full of lures. A Shakespeare rod & reel, prize pack and medals were handed out to first, second and third place in both divisions. Shakespeare is the main sponsor.
