The Manhasset Bay Sportsmen’s Club held its annual flounder derby on the Port Washington town dock on Saturday, May 2. This year, they renamed the derby the Robert “Skip” Campbell Flounder Derby in honor of Skip Campbell, the event organizer. About 25 children turned out to fish at the flounder derby. Though none of the kids caught a fish this year, many prizes were raffled off, including rods and reels, tackle boxes,
fishing nets and T-shirts. The sportsmen’s club also gave out free hot dogs, drinks and snacks, water bottles and a certificate to all participants. This was the 52nd annual spring fishing derby. This year, the Manhasset Bay Sportsmen’s Club celebrates its 70th anniversary. The sportsmen’s club also holds a snapper derby in August.
