Kids Fish event March 7, 2020, offers free poles, tackle box and bait to 200 local children. Register online at kidsfish.cityoflamarque.org.

Citizens of La Marque are invited and encouraged to bring their children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, godchildren, friends’ kids and neighborhood kids to La Marque Kids Fish from 8:00 a.m. to noon, Saturday, March 7, 2020, at Highland Bayou Park in La Marque, Texas. The age range is from 2 to 16 years old.

The first 200 kids to register are guaranteed a t-shirt, youth rod and reel, stocked tackle box, bait and lunch. Advanced registration is encouraged at kidsfish.cityoflamarque.org.

There are only two requirements for participation in La Marque Kid’s Fish:

  1. Kids have adult supervision at the event
  2. The attending adult has a La Marque Utility Bill or ID

La Marque Kids Fish is an initiative of La Marque City Manager Tink Jackson, funded by La Marque City Council’s Youth Fund and sponsored by Serious Tackle, located at Gulfway Plaza in La Marque.

“This event allows us to provide an opportunity for our kids to do something fun and educational with our city employees,” said Jackson. “Where else can a young person fish with a fireman, police officer and a public works employee at the same time? By allowing the kids to keep the rod, reel and tackle, we hope to foster a love of outdoor activities. We want these kids to enjoy fishing with their families throughout the year, any time they want to go.”

Mac McGaffey Highland Bayou Park is located at 1991 Getty Road. Come I-45 South and take Exit 10. For information, find our Facebook event, visit kidsfish.cityoflamarque.org or call 409-938-9255.
