Kids have fun at fishing day

The Paradise Public Fishing Area and Tifton Kiwanis Club hosted the 23rd annual Kids' Fishing Day on Saturday.

Families flocked to the Paradise grounds for a morning of fishing. The ponds were stocked with fish, and some were as large as five pounds. They also had a fishing simulator and held a casting contest.

"It's a great family day," said Noel Jackson, area manager at Paradise PFA. "You should see the excitement on those kids' faces when they're reeling in that catfish."
