Fishing Derby Registration
Fishing Derby registration will be held July 8th from 6:00-8:30 pm at the Breakroom Pub and Grub, Main St, Tampico, IL and prizes will be awarded on Sunday July 17th on Tampico Main Street, 12:00 pm. A taco bar will be available for only $5 a person during registration.
This event is free of charge to participants, but donations are welcome.
This years fishing derby will again be held as a virtual event that you will have time to fish on your own at the location of your choice. Participants will pre-register here.
On July 8th participants will register at the Break Room Pub & Grub, Tampico, IL and receive a puck that will be photographed with your catch.
This event is open to youth ages 15 and under.
Fishing can take place from July 9th – July 15th at your choice of location. You submit your catch via photo to Facebook. Then on July 17th, 12:00 pm, Main St prizes will be awarded. It’s that simple.
Like and follow the Tampico Festival page and find the Fishing Derby event. Fishing can be done at any location, as long as it is legal and safe to do so. Fish can be any type (catfish, blue gill…) Fish will be photographed laying on a tape measure or ruler and must include the puck that is provided to you by the Festival at registration to be a valid entry. Then post in the “Fishing Derby” event on the Tampico Days Facebook page. Longest fish wins in each age group.
Please remember that this is a fishing derby meant to provide kids the opportunity to reel in a big one while practicing good safety and having fun. We encourage participants to fish as independently as possible and discourage cheating. Use this event as a time to teach kids the art of fishing and enjoy some time together. All entries must be sent to the festival page by Friday July 15th. Prizes will be awarded on Main Street Tampico at 12:00 pm. Even those that didn’t catch a fish will be awarded a prize. Have Fun and Be Safe!!
