At this year’s tournament we’ll to host 3 new fishing stars – kids from around the state who are battling childhood brain cancer. We’re going to treat them with a fun day of gifts and fishing. We want to bring a smile to their faces. Over the last year we’ve held a number of family-friendly events.
