Some lucky kids are in for a "reel" surprise this Christmas. They'll be getting brand new fishing poles and tackle boxes, courtesy of the Bryan Bass Club's Junior Bass Masters.
Club members were at the Gander Mountain in College Station Monday night to make the donation to Toys for Tots. A total of 50 rod and reels and tackle boxes were given away along with dozens of lures.
"The kids came up with this idea all on their own," said Danny Gove, Texas Bass Masters Youth Director. "We hope to take what they started and take it to the next level and roll this out statewide next year."
The Junior Bass Masters organized fund raisers at Gander Mountain to pay for the presents.
