Trout season is here and the Erie PA Sport Fishing Association is celebrating with their Spring Trout Challenge. The event took place at the Sloppy Duck Saloon along Erie’s Bayfront, and these diehards weren’t about to let a little rain get in their way. Especially since the top prize for biggest fish caught was $500.
Joe Nemet, Member of the Erie PA Sport Fishing Association, says, “You know, it’s never certain with these guys. These guys are really good fishermen so to get those fish in the boat and to think you have a really good chance at winning, that’s a good feeling.”
Organizers of the event say it’s a great way to celebrate the start of trout season.
