More than 200 children gathered, fishing poles in hand, anxious to begin trying their luck in catching a big bass or even a little catfish at Golden Era Golf Course’s three lakes in San Jacinto Saturday, April 13.For some of the 225 children, ages 6 to 15, it was the first time trying to catch a fish stocked and grown in the golf course lakes. Most of the children were not disappointed as they hooked a fighting bass, a tugging catfish or a little bluegill as together they hauled in 165 fish, weighed them and tossed them back, according to a Golden Era Golf Course news release. The total was verified by Hemet police Chief Michael Arellano and his assistants at the special event.Kicking off the free children’s fishing tournament was an aerial aerobatic show performed by Doug Medo
