The Monticello Fire Fighters Association will host a fishing rodeo on May 30 from daylight until 5 p.m. with cash prizes awarded for the “Biggest Fish”, “Most Fish” and “Most Weight” categories.
Participants must follow all Arkansas Game & Fish regulations and may weigh in any game fish (bass, bream, crappie and catfish) caught in public waters with some type of fishing pole.
Weigh in will be held at 5 p.m. at the Monticello Central Fire Station located at 114 West Wood in Monticello. Winners will be announced after all fish are weighed and results are tallied.
The entry fee is $20 per person and an additional $5 per person for biggest fish entry (any age). Registration forms may be picked up at the Monticello Central Fire Station or by contacting any Monticello firefighter. Each person participating must complete a registration form and return to the fire station no later than May 16. The form and entry fee may be mailed to P.O. Box 505, Monticello, AR 71657 to the attention of the Monticello Fire Fighters Association or may be dropped off at the Monticello Central Fire Station.
All proceeds will go to the Monticello Fire Fighters Association to aid in community projects.
