What's Father's Day without some serious fishing?
The Tuna Kahuna Fishing Derby at Blackhawk Park in South Elgin was the perfect change for dads to spend some quality time with kids and worms.
Mike Hladeck of Elgin brought his 4-year-old daughter Nicole and 8-year-old son Matthew.
"I like coming with my dad," Nicole said.
Approximately 150 people attend the event each year.
