Event details

"Fishing for Hospice Fun Fishing Derby and Fundraiser”

              This is an opportunity for fishermen to raise money for a cause that has helped many people in some of the toughest of times.  As fishermen, we are blessed to be able to do what we do and create memories every day on the water that for some last a lifetime.  We also tend to be a grounded, competitive, and generous group of people who are willing to reach out to help others.  This event is meant to combine these things into an event that enables us to collectively help others.

Who: All fishermen are invited to participate – both ELOSTA and Non-ELOSTA members (membership is encouraged and will be available at the weigh in)

When: July 1st

Where: weigh-in will be at the Mexico VFW Pavilion from 6:00 PM – 6:45 PM (in the event that all fish are not weighed in by 6:45 - everyone who is in line by that time will have their fish weighed in)

Cost: $20 per boat (additional donations are welcome)

How to enter:  Contact Phil Lucason at 315-709-9958 preferably by text with your name, boat name / team, and your cell phone number.  You will get a text or phone call back confirming your entry.  Payment will occur at the event weigh-in and is “on your honor” to pay once entered.

Two Categories: Single largest trout or salmon AND biggest combined three trout and / or salmon

The two winners will have the donation to Hospice made in either their name, in memory of a loved one, or their team name.

All fishermen are to use their best judgment for their safety and the safety of those they are fishing with. 

In the event that you are unable to fish due to weather or other unforeseen issues, please honor your sign-up / donation commitment and go to the Mexico VFW during the weigh-in time.  Someone will be there to meet you and accept your donation.

This is our opportunity to help others by doing what we love.
