MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – Some Myrtle Beach students “reeled in” an afternoon of fun on Friday while fishing with city police officers.

According to information on the Myrtle Beach City Government’s Facebook page, the event was called “Cops N Bobbers,” which gave students from Myrtle Beach Intermediate School the chance to make that big catch alongside members of the Myrtle Beach Police Department.

The students received a fishing lesson at Grand Park at The Market Common as well as lunch with the officers before heading back to class.

All participants practiced catch-and-release fishing.
