BACK FROM A summer fishing break, the Pasadena Sportfishing Group will have its monthly meeting at 7:30 p.m. Monday at the Earleigh Heights fire hall, on Ritchie Highway at Magothy Bridge Road.

A panel discussion on fishing techniques will be held, featuring T.J. Johnson, skipper of the Tracy Lynn; Bill Williams, skipper of the Megabite; and Ralph Thompson, skipper of the Lady Luck.

"These captains are out of the South River area, so they have a wealth of local fishing knowledge to share," said group spoksman George Bentz.

The PSG also is finalizing plans for its kids' fishing derby Aug. 18 at Downs Park.

"We're expecting a great turnout for this year's derby," Bentz said. "It's fun for the kids and our members."

The derby will take place from 8:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. It is open to kids ages 5 through 15. The cost is $2 per child. Free bait and refreshments will be provided. Prizes will be awarded.

Membership in the PSG is free and open to anglers of all ages.

At Monday's meeting, a 50/50 raffle will be held and three door prizes will be awarded. "We're excited to have a turkey cooker, a hand-held VHF radio, and a Penn 309 trolling reel to give away," Bentz said.
