Day Of Caring: Logan Aluminum Fishing Tournament

"Fishing is good for you. You get to catch a big fish and get to throw it back in there."

RUSSELLVILLE, Ky. (WBKO) -- The lines are tied and the bait is on the hook as competitors try to reel in the big one.

"4-10. 4 pounds, 10 ounces. Whew! That's a biggie!" shouted the official weigher.

Luckily others saw their bobbers dip under water and scales on the end of their lines.

The sizes ranged from huge at more than five pounds, to the small, around three inches to be exact. Big or little it's a day participants appreciate year after year.

"Fishing is good for you. You get to catch a big fish and get to throw it back in there," said one of the participants.

It doesn't take much for volunteers from Logan Aluminum to get in on the action either. They like a little competition while teaching a passion of theirs to the community.

"They're sharing something that they love with the participants. They're getting to show them how to do that with the love of fishing, along with the joy and excitement of seeing that bobber go down and getting to reel one in," said Logan Aluminum Human Resource Manager, Stacey Hughes.

It wasn't just the fish that got reeled in at the lake, so did people from all over the community, just like every year, caught by the Day Of Caring.
