Fire Department Fishing Tournament

Every year since we bought our farm, the local fire department has asked us to use our creek for it's annual fishing tournament.  We have about a mile of creek frontage which is very sought after by fishermen.    
 The fire department stocks the creek for the 2 day tournament and people camp out and make a weekend out of it.  After the first day the largest fish was 6 pounds 15 oz, but I was told that they had put in some 9 pounders.
We were working cattle Saturday so we didn't stop (you can just see some people fishing from the bank).  The part I like is the fish fry/pot luck afterwards that the department invites us to as a thank you.  This year they even had a bluegrass band as entertainment.  I ate way too much.   We have tried fishing during and after the tournament and have yet to catch a fish.  If the weather ever clears up maybe I'll give it another try.
