ST.JUDE FUNDRAISER (SAT. APRIL 14TH FARMINGTON LEGION)

4 posts in this topic

They have being putting this on for I think 6 years now it is a great time there are great give aways and awesome silent auction items. I would say 80 to 90% of the people that go are all bass fishermen, and it is for a great cause.

Fundraiser for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital

“Beer Bash!”

Saturday, April 14

6-9pm

Farmington American Legion

Located ¼ mile North of Hwy 50 on Hwy 3

East side of Downtown Farmington

St. Jude is the nation’s premier research center for catastrophic childhood diseases. When St. Jude first opened in 1962, a child with leukemia had virtually no chance for survival. Today, thanks to the research at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, 90% of children with the most common form of leukemia can be cured. It treats children without regard to race, religion, creed or ability to pay. St. Jude covers all costs not covered by insurance. Families without insurance are never asked to pay. St. Jude relies almost solely on public donations; fund raising efforts like the Dick Hiley/St. Jude Bass Invitational are vital to the success of the hospital.

The Team of Trent Soberg of Lakeville and Keith Larson of Farmington are fishing the Dick Hiley/St. Jude Bass Invitational on May 5-6. All proceeds will be donated to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. On behalf of St. Jude, Trent Soberg and Keith Larson, Thank You for supporting this cause.

$10.00 Donation

Free Beer

There will be Raffle and Silent Auction items. Remember all proceeds go to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

*Tickets sold at door or in advance at Farmington American Legion

Wished I would have known about this sooner. I live in Farmington and St. Jude is a customer of my company. We do a lot of work with them.

My brother and them do it every year right around the same time so they will be doing it again next year I think they raised just over $5,000.

      Considering how old a laker has to be before reaching reproductive maturity, a slot may help.  The only thing I'd worry about there is having to put a bleeder back down the hole because it wasn't legal.  Then if a person wanted to keep their limit, that would just mean a wasted fish should they be able to get two more.   When I first started laker fishing, catching and keeping "my two" was a given if I were to have that good of a day.  Then it changed to releasing pretty much everything over the mid - 20 inch range unless it bled.  Now 1 fish in the 24 inch range would be my perfect weekend limit if I could choose.   When a person gets introduced to these addictive ghosts, it's tough to put em back.  There's a lot of excitement and pride in earning such a prized fish.  And I really enjoy eating them.  But in the case of Burntside, I would support a 1 fish limit, no slot.

      I decided to go watch them pull it out.   Never seen that before.   While they are working on pulling it out, another car is driving at them down the riverbed.   The officer has to run over and shoe them away.   The DNR might need to close that to traffic since there are a lot of dumb people.   Don

      Great article; very educational.  Thanks for sharing.  I would be interested to know if having a slot limit on lake trout would help populations like it has with walleyes.  If so, why hasn't the DNR implemented it yet?

      Mr. B, Welcome to FM! June is almost always a good tome to fish for bass on the shorelines! Plenty of good bass country on the whole lake too! I do not fish for bass much but there are plenty of people on this site that do so you should get some good info.! Cliff
