PITMAN — Justin McCourt hauled in a 23-pound, 30-inch carp to win first prize in the Pitman police department’s “First Ever Fishing Tournament” Saturday.
Approximately 150 kids entered the competition at Alcyon Lake.
Second prize went to Piper Harmon, who caught a catfish. (Photo after "Read More")
The tournament “is another one of our community outreach programs,” said Police Chief Robert Zimmerman.
“This was a great way to bring our kids together with our officers and allow (the children) to see us in a positive light, as friends and role models,” he said.
Patrolmen Chris Leach and Marshall Pierson organized the event, which raised money for the department’s K-9 Unit.
