Members of Cedar Point Sportsman Club, the little campground just north of La Salle and north of Interstate 80, again this year reached out to give children something to do, for free.

Dozens of boys and girls, from age 4 into their teens, competed at the lake in the club’s annual “fishing rodeo” Saturday morning. And it wasn't just for club members. For example, Scott and Tammy Oleson of Compton brought daughter LeAnn, 6, to fish after her second-place finish in the Better Fishing Association's tournament earlier in June at Illinois and Michigan Canal's Lock 14 at La Salle.

Club members provided cups of corn kernels, waxworms and night crawlers for the participants, and at 9 a.m., sounded a horn for the competition to begin. Parents, grandparents and club members helped children with tying knots and baiting hooks, although many of the parents wanted their kids, even the girls, to at least try putting a worm on a hook.

Club members provided gifts to each and, for winners, prizes such as tackle boxes.
