Merrick Lefebure, 5, of Vero Lake Estates, waits his turn to have his mangrove snapper measured. Nearly 250 children ages 5-12 gathered under the Merrill P. Barber Bridge Saturday morning for the annual 'Take a Kid Fishing' event, sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of Vero -Treasure Coast. For more than a decade, the Kiwanis Club has held the annual event. Everything is provided including fishing poles, bait and a lunch of hamburgers and hot dogs. Winners receive trophies for most caught, biggest, smallest and of course, ugliest.
