    i was thinking that some time here soon when the weather heats up a little i was gonna try to get a fish off going and if i can afford it have some kind of prize for the winner but i was wanting to check with everyone and see what you guys think

    THE PURPOSE:

    Muscular Dystrophy (''Jerry's Kids'')

    the reason i want to do a fish off is that my son was recentley diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) and i was gonna see about raffeling off poles , line, hooks weights or something dont know but all money 100% will go to MDA every bit helps to find the cure:sad2::cool2:
    thanks for reading please let me know if anyone has a better idea or know any thing that would help let me know
    thanks
    noah
    aimee
    and my boy
    Thomas
    god bless

    You might try checking with your local Wal-Mart for prize donations. Our Wal-Mart has been pretty good about donating items for charities.

    Just make sure you get your paper work in to the DNR, as they will need it at least 30 days prior to an event (I think it is still 30 days) any way, just so ya know that, hate to see someone get everything lined out and then have them get involved in a wrong way......

    The more central you go with a Lake the better chance you will have of more people showing up...... Your probably not going to get many from say north of I-70 to drive to Crab as would Rend..... Just my $0.02 on it.

    Dont matter where it is going to be you can count me in . We do lots of poker runs for different charities and for friends etc. Fixing to do one for my son in law to help with the bills from him being in the hospital .

    Make flyers and let anyone participate in it and you might be suprised at the people who would show up for it .

    I would love to fish for a good cause. Let me know when and where and the gang and I will be there. This is the type of thing I would like to see more of as well. There are many reasons to fish but if I can help others while fishing then you just can't beat that. Definately contact some local business for donations and let us know how that goes. If they will not support you then I will not support them. Let me know if there is anything that I can do to help.
