A fishing tournament is always a boatload of fun. (pun intended) This year, maybe try fishing for a cause at the Castin’ ‘N Catchin’ Fishing Tournament.
Captain D’s Castin’ ‘N Catchin’ is a fishing tournament event that benefits the Pediatric and Congenital Heart Center at Children’s of Alabama. The center offers patient and family care for cardiovascular services. They maintain a variety of important personnel such as surgeons, child life counselors, nutritionists and other cardiology related staff.
Since this is only their second year hosting the tournament, you can imagine it is only going to get bigger and better. Last year, $105,000 was raised for the center and the goal is to raise even more.
The event will start the weekend of May 5th at Goose Pond Colony Resort on Lake Guntersville. Friday, May 5th at 6pm there will be a dinner and meeting for all of the anglers participating. The fishing will begin on Saturday, May 6th as early as 5:30am. Weigh-in will start at 2pm later that afternoon.
There will be door prizes galore and some family friendly fun for the sidelines. Of course, there will be a payout for the top 30 winners with the biggest catches. The Grand Prize will be a whopping $12,000! I need to start practicing my cast now.
Register or before April 23rd to receive an official tournament t-shirt. The entry fee is $110.
