Upcoming event for Carl
The Ike Foundation and the Mid-Atlantic Youth Anglers & Outdoor Program will team up to sponsor a day of family fun and a series of fund-raising events on Saturday (Aug. 6) at the Camden Waterfront in New Jersey.
Known as “The First Annual Ike Celebrity Pro-Am Bass Fishing Tournament & Family Fun Fest,” the public festivities start at 11 a.m. and include carnival games, face-painting, kids fishing instruction, giveaways, 50/50 raffles and auctions, along with music and food on the waterfront. The first 500 people receive bracelets for a discount to the nearby Camden Children’s Garden and the Battleship New Jersey, both of which are nearby, as is the Adventure Aquarium.
Fishing competitors meet at 7 a.m. and boats launch from Wiggins Park Marina at 8. Fifty teams, 19 of which are captained by current tour pros, will participate. First prize is a 2016 Bass Cat Margay boat and trailer valued at $30,000; 2nd prize is an Exmark Mower valued at $12,000 and 3rd, 4th and 5th prizes are boxes with $500 Rapala gift cards, Flambeau gift packs and other items.
