The Seekonk Lions Twelfth Annual Doug Allan Memorial Fishing Tournament


The Seekonk Lions Twelfth Annual Doug Allan Memorial Fishing Tournament on Patriots Day 2024 proved once again to be the best fishing derby in town. A good turnout of over 60 kids and parents battling it out for the top prize at the prestigious American Legion Post 311 awards banquet.

There were not as many bites as the last year, which made it a tough competition. Best catch this year was by Brooke Laliberte pulling in a 14 ¼” rainbow trout. Close runners-up were Devin Le, Sage Nicolson and Luke Peltz respectively checking in 12” to 14” beauties. Natalie Horton caught the only catfish of the day. Sage and Devin caught three trout each!

With over $1500 in gifts and donations, the Doug Allan Memorial Fishing derby makes this the place to be on Patriots Day.
