Fishing Meirt Badge

Several scouts working on the fishing merit badge went our to Roane County Park on Watts Bar Lake to complete requirement 9 for the Fishing Merit Badge. Requirement 9 is to "Catch at least one fish and identify it. If regulations and health concerns permit, clean and cook a fish you have caught. Otherwise, acquire a fish and cook it." We met at Kern UMC at 1:00PM on Sunday, August 24th, and got to the lake a little after 1:30PM. We fished for a couple of hours then setup to clean, cook, and eat our catch. The scouts did a good job and by the end of the day everyone had fulfilled the requirement. And everyone at least tasted their fish. We packed up and headed out around 5:45PM and got back to the church around 6:15PM.
