Participants are encouraged to bring their own fishing gear, catfish bait, and stringers. Families are invited to come enjoy quality time together in a safe environment.

MVSU is located on Hwy 82 at Itta Bena. Fishing will start at 7 a.m. Call Ruthie Robinson at MVSU at (601) 704-0457 for more information.
