SAN JOSE, Calif. — The bass fishing club at San Jose State University is founding the California Delta Kids fishing event for disadvantaged children.

"We are and have been working with Cast For Kids and other organizations as well for children with special needs and accomodations," said Anthony Lee, club president. "We take the kids fishing, put tackleboxes together and create an experience these kids will never forget.

"For many of them, this may be their only opportunity to get to fish on a real bass boat and catch a ton of fish," Lee continued.

In all, the 20 volunteers have dedicated up to 200 man-hours to get 50 kids educated about bass fishing.
