MOORE COUNTY — Can you social distance and participate in a Memorial Day fishing tournament? Heck yeah.

UT Extension, Tennessee State Extension, and Moore County 4-H are partnering for a virtual fishing tournament for kids 9-18 this weekend through next Friday. Just take a photo of that catch and boom … you are entered. The category will be for longest fish (large mouth bass, small mouth bass, striped bass, crappie, walleye, trout, or catfish). All photos must show your fish on a measuring board or next to a measuring tape with the head to the left. Any photo without a measure will not be judged.

It’s free to enter. Simply email your photo to lburtts@utk.edu or text it to 931-675-1590 by no later that 11:59 p.m. on Friday, May 29. Submitted fish do not have to be caught in Moore County. •
