August 27th - 28th, 2021

This year’s event marks the 16th year anglers have come together to help fight hunger in our communities. Along with our special partner, Ducks Unlimited, we will be hosting the dinner, auction, raffles and awards ceremony on Saturday night. The dinner is open to the public, and we encourage folks to join in the fun regardless if they have participated in the competition.

The event starts with Big Fish Friday as an additional day of fun for those that want to pre-fish, have a little extra competition, and "tune up" for Saturday by scouting out the fish.

Saturday is the big event with the main fishing competition, BBQ and awards dinner. Participants can enter side pots for a chance to win even bigger cash prizes!

Non-participants can also get in on the action by buying raffle tickets for a chance to win nice prizes during the awards dinner and participate in the auction.
