      KBIC Kids Fishing Derby getting set to kick off Saturday

      The KBIC Kids Fishing Derby is getting ready to let fly this weekend at Buck's Marina in Baraga.

      While fishing is still the main event to be had this year, there'll be at least one new event to add to the roster of entertainment for the day.

      "We've got various games. We've got bouncy houses coming from the Escanaba area," says event coordinator Gene Mensch. "This year for the first time, we've got pony rides set up. Fishing is still the theme, but there are so many things to do. We're hoping that the kids have a very good day."

      The fishing derby is this Saturday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Registration ends at noon on that day. Over 500 kids are expected to attend.
