When La Marque City Manager Tink Jackson came to town in May 2019, he had a few plans in mind. Infrastructure improvements, quality of life enhancements and this La Marque Kids Fish event. Registration for Tink’s Inaugural Kids Fish opened in December, and we hit the goal of 200 registered kids in early January.
Along with the kiddos and their guardians, community volunteers and city staff will converge on Mac McGaffey Highland Bayou Park for a day of fishing and fun. More than 500 people are expected.
Thanks to our generous sponsors and the city’s Youth Fund, each registered kid gets a fishing pole, stocked tackle box, bait, t-shirt and lunch. La Marque Kids Fish is a full-fledged youth fishing tournament with category awards and an overall winner.
