2018 American Legion Fishing Derby

It was a miserable cold day with windchill factors at 30 below zero, but thousands of people braved the cold and came out to fish...well for a while. It got to be too much for some and they headed back to warmth early, but there were plenty of hardy folks fishing right to the end for a chance to win.
