Minnesota fishermen are dreaming of fishing open water and making plans to join the fun at the fourth annual Minnesota Fishing Challenge presented by Mills Fleet Farm. This is the special Gull Lake event near Brainerd hosted by legendary Hall of Fame angler, Al Lindner.
“The fishing fraternity comes together and supports Minnesota Teen Challenge on this day. The anglers have fun doing what they do while raising funds for this organization which has a success rate off the charts,” Lindner said. The date for the multi-species tournament is Saturday, June 2, but teams should enter early. Enter on-line at mntc.org/fishingchallenge, or call 218-833-8777.
Steve Pennaz, honorary tournament director, said, “Fishing brings people together. In the Challenge, they’re fishing for a cause, to support those fighting drug and alcohol addictions in Teen Challenge centers in Brainerd, Duluth and the Twin Cities.”
Two-person teams may elect to fish one or all four divisions, Lindner Media bass, Nor-Son pike, Full Throttle walleye or Nor-Son panfish. Or, they could bring one of each to the scales and enter only the Sportech Mixed Bag division. Numerous prizes are up for grabs, including resort stays in the US and Canada, rods and reels, tackle, Frabill ice shelters, MinnKota trolling motors, and much more. Teams entered by April 13 will automatically be eligible for a trip-for-two to Pasha Lake camp north of Thunder Bay, Ontario (pashalake.com).
Lindner said, “I urge teams to enter early so the fund-raising reason for this great event can really make an impact in lives.” The Teen Challenge mission is to assist teens and adults in gaining freedom from chemical addictions and other life controlling problems by addressing their physical, emotional and spiritual needs.
