Statement of Purpose
Lake Association News
On Saturday, June 8, 2013, the Kickin’ Bass Fishing Club and the Woodbury Heights Lake Association (WHLA) hosted another tremendous day of (catch and release) fishing, fun, food, and prizes when the clouds parted to gift us with a beautiful day. This Annual Fishing Derby (held at Glen Lake in Woodbury Heights) is a great community builder for the young and young-at-heart alike as they test their fishing skills and interact with peers/parents/mentors (or just kick back for some relaxation among new and seasoned friends).
A total of 92 youth signed up this year with a combined catch of 100 fish ( bass, sunfish, crappies, and catfish). Prizes were also awarded for the largest, smallest, and most fish (any species) in each age group. The winner for the largest fish in each age group received a trophy, a new rod/reel combo, a WHLA T-shirt, and a prize pack of assorted goodies. The prize for most fish caught in each age group was a $20 Dicks gift card, a new rod/reel combo, and a prize pack. The prize for the smallest fish in each group was a new rod/reel combo, and a prize pack. In addition to the prizes awarded, all other youth who entered and participated received a gift bag full of items provided by the sponsors.
The winners, by age group, of this year’s event are as follows :
5 & under:
Largest- Brody McLaventy
Most – Rian Caldwell
Smallest – Gabriel Brown

The overall Grand Prize for largest fish caught (a bass weighing in at 15 inches at a bit under 2 pounds) was awarded to 7 year old Murray Peters. He received a $100 gift certificate to STC Sports in Gibbstown and a new fishing rod/reel combo. A very grateful thank you goes out to our many sponsors and supporters who worked together to make this event possible. They include; the Kickin’ Bass Fishing Club, the South Jersey Bass Club Association, the Woodbury Heights Lake Association (WHLA), WH Police Dept. DARE Program, STC Sports, Chick-fil-a, Wawa, Cabela’s, Dick’s Sporting Goods, Woodbury Heights Millennium Committee and the Woodbury Heights ambulance volunteers.
