Several fish and plenty of fun at Kids MBI
By Ken Johnston
While the numbers were down for the annual Kids MBI Sunday, likely due to the extreme heat and humidity, the 18 kids competing in it had fun and caught fish!
Having one hour to fish, the youngest angler in the field, Parker Forester, 2, of Rainy River, wasted little time catching a perch seven minutes into the tournament.
Brady Boissonneault, 10, of Timmins, Ont. also caught a perch, eight mins. after Forester.
Two brothers would then catch the next two, both perch, CJ Flaten, 8, and Hunter Rice, 9, of Roseau, MN caught fish at the 25 and 27 min. mark respectively.
Another brother, Patrick Boissonneault, a twin to Brady, then got on the board at the 29 min. mark with a perch.
Not to be outdone by her brother, Teira Forester, 5, caught a perch at the 30 min. mark.
Patrick Boissonneault then caught his second fish, an 8 oz walleye at the 35 min. mark.
Flaten also caught another fish, a walleye, at the exact time as Boissonneault.
Teira Forester then added another perch to her basket at the 46 min. mark.
Jayden Asselin, of Rainy River then caught the next two fish, both perch, at the 48 and 52 min. marks.
Christian Tiboni, of RR, caught a 13 oz. walleye at the 53 min. mark.
But it was to be Patrick Boissonneault’s day... he sealed the Most Fish and Championship with another walleye, 12 oz, at the 54 min mark.
Also winning prizes were Tiboni for biggest fish and Parker Forester for youngest angler.
