The annual Hamilton Harbour Fishing Derby was held Saturday at Pier 8 and Bayfront Parks.
Anglers were able to have their catches entered in three age categories for prizes. A thousand fishing rods were given away to anglers 12 years old and under.
Several angling groups volunteered to help with baiting and rigging rods.
