Tihonet Pond Fishing Derby 

Join the Wankinquoah R&G Club for the annual Tihonet Pond Fishing Derby, a great day for family,  fishing, and fun.

The Derby will be held Sunday, June 2. Check-in begins at 4 a.m.  Fishing begins at 6 a.m., and awards are at 2 p.m.  Prizes will be awarded in multiple categories for adults and juniors.  Enter the raffle for a chance to win great prizes like a Kayak, a Fresh Water Trolling Motor and Bass Pro Gift Cards. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Wankinquoah R & G Club Youth Group. The derby falls on the Massachusetts Free Fishing Weekend, therefore, fishing licenses are not required this year. 

“It’s a terrific day, whether you’re a serious fisherman or you just want to enjoy some fun with your kids. It’s amazing to see entire families enjoying the day on the pond.” said Roland Murphy, President of the Wankinquoah Rod and Gun Club.

“It’s a great way to support the associate program and the traditions of the Club.  The associates work hard to make sure everything is ready for a good day of fishing.  We really put them to work and they get a lot out of the whole day.” Murphy continued.

In addition, representatives from the Wareham Harbormaster’s Department will be on hand to discuss boat and water safety with attendees.

The fee is $12 for adults and $3 for children age 14 and younger.  The fee includes breakfast.  Lunch and bait are available for purchase. 

Be sure to visit the recently re-opened Makepeace Farms in Tihonet VIllage while you are here for delicious treats, New England inspired products and locally made Ice Cream!
