Lions clubs, HC&S sponsor fishing derby

The seven Lions clubs on Maui (East Maui, Haleakala, Kahului Airport, Kahului, Kihei-Wailea, Maui, and West Side Lions) sponsored a fishing derby June 1 for vision- and hearing-impaired members and their families at Maui Tropical Plantation in Waikapu.

Fishing Derby Chairperson Jackie Yamamoto reported that the Lions awarded first-, second- and third-place trophies in three categories – smallest tilapia, largest tilapia and most tilapia caught.

After the contest, the tilapia were released back into the pond to await another fishing derby. Also after the contest, Maui Tropical Plantation offered the participants a free tour of its plantation.
