The Bayside Anglers will host the 13th annual Snapper Derby at the Bayside Marina for young fishers from northeast Queens on Aug. 24.
The free event, which begins at 10 a.m., is aimed at children of all ages, who will be provided with fishing equipment and given some basic instructions on how to catch a fish.
This year’s derby, which is catch and release, has been named in honor of Jimmy Miranda, one of the marina’s partners who died last year.
Prizes, such as fishing rods and reels, and pizza will be given away to attendees.

The marina is located at 28-05 Cross Island Parkway in Bayside.
